Google between China and China

Google in trouble with China. All all because of the challenges to define or categorise the correct China. Or Taiwan. Or Republic of China. Whatever.

First, Google named Taiwan a province of China and bowed to their pressure. Taiwan insisted that they are the real thing - the Republic of China. After bowing to this pressure, not surprisingly, China, the Motherland, became upset. Now, the "Chinese media reckons that chatroom militants across China are suggesting a boycott of Google's China service." If I would now know, which China is meant in this quotation, I could re-categorise it.
