From filtering to software piracy

How the desire to control child pornography turns into a piracy/ illegal trade issue...Apparently, upon request of China, computers shifted from the US to China must contain a 'Chinese' filtering software... which code is partly stolen from a US company!

Chinese censorware has stolen code, says US firm (ZDNet.co.uk, 15 June 2009)

update: "US asks China to drop filtered software " (ZDnet.co.uk, 25 June 2009)
