You must respect the locality of laws, such as content deemed inappropriate for General Audiences, however, that is defined in the locality, must be respected. In addition, some countries require ring-fencing data, meaning all of your data, for a particular country, must not leave the country, making it more costly for companies, like Google, and others, because they cannot have centralized, regional data centers, and must maintain data centers inside the locality, e.g. electronic communications from the Island of Jersey (Europe), must stay withing that locality, if both the sender and receiver are within the locality. These countries may require ringfencing of data because of security, or any number of protectionist reasons, which of course, if it is their law, who is it to impose against these laws, a multi-national corporation like Google? However, if these multi-national facilitators of communications and data do require regulations, if they want to do business in the locality, just like ANY OTHER BUSINESS, they must respect the laws of the land. I spit chewing gum on the streets of Singapore, and I am arrested. It has always been respect the local laws, as we say, when in Rome, so why now, are we changing them, we should not. We've imported/exported communications, goods, and services for thousands of years. The cost of doing business in certain countries will go up for these multi-national corporations like Google, or they shut down their operations, and other companies sprout in their place, just as happened with China.
