Three months after a well-publicized dust-up with Google, China releases a white paper detailing its plans and policies for Internet use.

AP: Three months after a well-publicized dust-up with Google, China has released a white paper that makes it clear the government will continue censoring the Web. They will block "contents subverting state power, undermining national unity, infringing upon national honor and interests, inciting ethnic hatred and secession," as well as porn and other objectionable content.

Interestingly, the paper praises Twitter, a service that the Chinese government currently blocks.

The paper also reports that China has 384 million Internet users, approximately 29 percent of the population.
