CN - China Green Dam web filter teams 'face funding crisis'

Reports from China say a controversial government-backed software project to filter internet content could be on the brink of collapse. State media said the developer behind the Green Dam Youth Escort software had closed its Beijing project team because of a lack of government funding. Its partner in Henan said without funding, its team would soon close too. China had insisted all computers be equipped with the software, but scaled back plans after censorship complaints.
