China and Google both say that nothing has changed, but the search engine results tell a different story. Perhaps that means the better question is if their was some sort of hack, accidental uncensoring, of if there is some internal miscommunication. We will have to wait a bit to see how this develops to get a better idea of the correct answer.
"Web sites dealing with subjects such as the Tiananmen Square democracy protests, Tibet and regional independence movements could all be accessed through Google's Chinese search engine Tuesday, after the company said it would no longer abide by Beijing's censorship rules.
Despite a report in the China Daily that Google China was still filtering content on its search engine and the firm's own insistence that its policies had not changed, people in Beijing found that it wasn't necessarily the case."
