Most Won't Have the Foundation

Jared Kim after talking about the tech startup he created last year in China: “China is making companies play ball by the local rules, and if those companies don't like those rules they can find another court because there are many other players willing to take their place. Foreign companies don't have a gambling chip in this particular situation. Google/Yahoo not censoring search results? Shut them down and have everyone use Baidu. MSN or Blogspot/Blogger (* domain blocked in China) not censoring blogs? Shut them down and have everyone use Blogcn. For every foreign company that enters the market, there are or will be five local companies that can offer the same service/product and offer the level of compliance that the government wants. Therefore, in order for Google, Yahoo, MSN to operate, compete, and continue to exist in China, they have to play by the rules. This applies even more so to the smaller companies who want to start in China, as most won't have the foundation or local resources that the big guys can acquire.”
