    China's actions should trigger SEC investigation

    Paradigm intel:

    China's actions should trigger SEC investigation, or equivalent.
    Cyberwar: China Declares War On Western Search Sites
    The Gov. of China is blocking traffic to all major search engines
    and redirecting traffic to a NASDAQ LISTED company,

    The NASDAQ listed Baidu dominates mainland search, in a big way due to its thorough indexing of illegal music and video and related search capabilities, a service that Google either refuses to or cant compete with.

    It would seem that it’s not just MP3’s that bring Chinese users to Baidu, it appears that ISP level redirects do as well.

    Further to our earlier story on visitors to Google Blogsearch being redirected to Baidu in China, new reports have surfaced that would indicate that China has unilaterally blocked all three major search engines in China and is redirecting all requests to Baidu.

    Digital Marketing Blog posts that all requests to and sub-sites are being redirected to Baidu. Google Blogscoped forums indicate that is also being re-directed to Baidu, as well as confirming the Yahoo story and our earlier Google post. The re-direct would also appear to apply to

    China may use its firewall as an economic tool as opposed to a censorship tool alone, and although censorship may be partially behind todays blanket ban of US search sites, the redirect to Baidu would indicate an economic motive; if the Chinese Government were serious about censorship alone we would have reports of page not found/ blocked messages, not redirects to Baidu. The Chinese Government is clearly using its censorship regime to the economic benefit of a Chinese owned (but NASDAQ listed) company.

    A new joint copyright alliance that includes CBS Corp., Dailymotion, Microsoft, NBC Universal, News Corp.’s Fox and MySpace units, Viacom Inc. and Walt Disney Co is due to launch Friday, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal.

    Google is noted as not being a member of the grouping, but in discussions to join.

    The group will address copyright-related issues including video piracy, with a focus on using technology to eliminate copyright-infringing content and blocking any infringing material before it is publicly accessible.




    Baidu Hijacking Google Traffic In China

    Posted: 18 Oct 2007 02:27 AM CDT

    Google has done it hard in China. Confined to acting within both local laws and US copyright laws it has failed to take the lead in a market that will have more broadband users that the United States in the next 12-18 months.

    So we have a Government China redirecting traffic to a chinese listed company listed on NASDAQ.


    In the Board of Directors Conference room ( NYSE ) is a bond framed on the wall, 3 foot by 4 foot of a bond, Chinese bond, from the past. ( as I remember it, to the right of the BAR, got drunk there, GREAT TIME )
    Right after the Chinese Gov floated the $500,000,000 bond they defaulted on it. Screwed bond buyers.

    Seems Wall Street just doesn't learn.

    China has recent threatened financial suicide also.



    1.What is

    Baidu is the leading Chinese language search engine. Baidu’s mission is to provide the best way for people to find information online, including Chinese language web pages, news, images and multimedia files though links provided on our website. In addition to serving individual Internet search users, we also provide an effective platform for businesses to reach potential customers online. Our online marketing services include auction-based P4P and tailored solutions. We believe we were the first auction-based P4P service provider in China.

    2.What is P4P?

    P4P stands for Pay for Performance. As the name would suggest, P4P customers bid for priority placements of links to their websites among relevant search results.

    3.How and when was Inc. established?

    Baidu was established in Year 2000 by co- founders, Robin Li and Eric Xu. Both of the co-founders are Chinese nationals who have studied and worked overseas before returning to China. Inc. is registered in the Cayman Islands.

    Who were Baidu’s underwriters?
    Goldman Sachs (Asia) L.L.C.
    Credit Suisse First Boston

    Stock and market info


    China just doesn't get it.

    This should put a BAD crimp in earnings.

    ( bring on the accountants )

    Very strange trading patterns,

    100% price increase last month.

    UP 300% in two months. $100 to $200 to $300.

    Previous 7 months ( start date ) traded $46 to $125 range.


    Graph ( full graph, public to date )

    The price chart could be indicating that the Chinese Government decided around the end of August to switch all traffic from Google, Yahoo, youtube all major search engines to Baidu around TODAY.

    As this insider information was leaked it drove the price of the stock up,

    volume increased from 1.3 million shares a DAY ( stock price $100 ) in August to

    over 5 million shares during September ( $200 a share ),

    to 7.3 million shares a day this month ( $320 today, 10.18.07 ).

    Question is who the Chinese Government let in on this insider info: blocking all the Western search Cos. and sending the hits to Baidu.

    And China wouldn't just give this information away, it was payment: for WHAT?

    And who the insiders are, trading on this info? ( ROUGH TOTAL PROFITS: 5 million shares A DAY, 30 days X $100 px increase is $15 billion A MONTH, X 2 months = $30 billion). This figure doesn't include profits from options, Calls.

    Options maybe exceed profits from straight stock. ( $30 bil + $30 bil = $60 bil max. )

    On top of that next year there will be as many broadband connections in China as in the USA. ( and I've been studying Arabic )

    Google's sales growth has topped 50 percent in all of its 13 quarters FROM the broadband connections in USA, and thats $4.23 Billion this Quarter.

    So China is hijacking Western traffic from China and sending it to a Chinese Company listed on NADSAQ. And maybe profiting from the insider info.

    This just boggles the mind.

    Doesn't China have any Anthropologist?

    They need to study western culture....



    China has recent threatened financial suicide before.


    Series 7 & 13

    ( no connection to this stock, have not, and do not have any interest, long or short, no Options. )

    UPDATE: China is talking about dumping its USD reserves, $1.43 trillion usd on the open market, in a buying spree. Can I write 1.43 trillion?


    So this insider trading might get swept under the rug for awhile.

    China blocked another US ship: Pentagon
