China OKs Content by Google

Google announced Tuesday it had received preliminary approval from Chinese authorities to provide Internet content there, Reuters reports.


The company released no other information about the license application.


It reported having the "required licenses" last year to operate its China site,, through a partnership with a local Web site,, following criticism that it wasn't licensed as a Web content provider.


The company also was criticized for using "self-censoring" in its search engine to appease the Chinese government.
