Baidu Tells Chinese, But Not Brazilian, Users When It Censors

As noted on this blog, Baidu appears to be imposing Chinese political censorship on certain searches on its recently-launched Brazilian search engine.

These screenshots show search results for "Hu Jintao" (胡锦涛) in Chinese on Baidu's Brazilian Busca and its PRC based search engine. The results are identical (Busca also includes two additional search results, both from websites controlled by the central government). Baidu's PRC based search engine tells users "In accordance with relevant laws, regulations, and policies, some search results have not been displayed." (根据相关法律法规和政策,部分搜索结果未予显示。).

Baidu's Busca contains no such notice.
