Baidu could be using technology to strengthen its censuraY CloudFlare the controversy erupted. The association, which could be seen as the victory of the Chinese people, keeps his dark side.

Through technology CloudFlare and data network Baidu, service Yunjiasu would load faster foreign sites from China, and Chinese websites from outside, usually affected by the heavy censorship that the Chinese regime exerts on Internet. So far so good: China begins to rely on foreign technology, begins to glimpse some opening is that strong censorship ...

However, they have already been many rumors that have revolved around this and see an ulterior motive in all this association. And there are already many who say Baidu, and by extension the government could be using technology and knowledge CloudFlare to strengthen its system of censorship. That is, CloudFlare, a company designed to protect sites from DDoS attacks now offers a service improvement to a company employed by the Chinese authorities to launch just such attacks. Strange and contradictory.

Now we have to see how they manage such funding, and to all new members. So the question that remains is how Google and Baidu will be now coexist under the same roof?
