Google may be locking horns with Beijing, but the country's netizens still have Goojje. Launched in January around the same time Google threatened to leave the country over censorship rules and repeated cyberattacks, the maverick Goojje incorporates elements from the home pages of both Google and China's most popular search engine, Baidu. The logo, for instance, uses Google's font but Baidu's trademark paw print. Google, for one, is not amused. In February the company sent a cease-and-desist letter to Goojje, demanding that it stop using the trademarked logo. Goojje, however, has stood firm, and months later, the site is still up and running.
