Internet censorship in China

As Chinese leaders have intensified censorship with the
Golden Shield project, indirectly aided by Microsoft, Cisco, Google and Yahoo, the supporters of uncensored internet-acces strike back:

Companies like DIT (Dynamic Internet Technology) or Ultrareach have developped programmes that help to bypass censorship by offering links to software downloads that can give access to blocked sites through constant changing of the IP-addresses.

As the Chinese political scientist and democracy activist Erping Zhang told the Austrian daily "DerStandard" 20 million of the estimated 115 million Chinese Internet users would have to use those technologies to really break through the filters via spreading of the censored content.This could be reached by a rapid increase of personal computers.
