The Chinese Subpoena

I wonder what will happen when Google gets a subpoena from the government of China asking who was trying to access the censored sites.  Not sure what the procedures are there for challenging a government request.

Not to make light of either the thorny issue of the US subpoena - a challenge is certainly a perfectly legitimate response - or the problem of how far a company goes in adapting itself to the mores of a host country.  But still, seems that the translation of "do no evil" in China is "show no evil - as we define it."
