+ - Chinese government to mandate PC censorware-> 1

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The Chinese government has sponsored the development of a censorware package called "Green Dam Youth Escort"; basically a PC-resident IP blocker that gets regular updates of banned sites from a central government site. There are now plans afoot to mandate that all new PCs sold in China be shipped with this software. The rationale behind this is to "stop the poisoning of children's minds"."
