The U.S. technology giant Microsoft has rejected allegations that its Bing search engine censors Chinese language results for users in the United States. Bing on Wednesday denied the censorship accusations. In a statement, Bing said it does not apply China’s legal requirements to searches conducted outside of China. It did acknowledge, however, that an error in its system triggered “incorrect results removal notification for some searches.” But it insisted the results themselves were uncensored outside of China. Earlier, an Internet freedom advocacy group, GreatFire.org, said censored results are appearing for search terms such as the Dalai Lama, the Tibetan spiritual leader who is regarded by Beijing as a “splittist.” Percy Alpha, with GreatFire.org, told VOA that Bing appeared to be filtering out links and stories that Chinese authorities would view as damaging.
