Xinhua reports Google's google.cn website has been licensed for operation:
The license was acquired through a deal with the Chinese website Ganji.com. Reports on Tuesday revealed that Google had not obtained the Internet Content Provider (ICP) licence needed to operate google.cn in China.

Google.cn was launched by Google during this year's Chinese Spring Festival period.

The President of Google's China company Kai-fu Lee told the press that using another company's ICP license is a common practice taken by many international companies shortly after entering China.
