The real battle is Google+Baidu vs. Yahoo! vs. Microsoft.

Much as Microsoft defined a new franchise (globalist access to everyone's digital sanctum, i.e. what's on your drive), so is there is the attempt to define 'search' as a new franchise (globalist access to what's on your mind). Microsoft would like to extend their franchise while Google would like to supplant Microsoft's franchise.

Google's stake in Baidu gives Google a stronger game with globalist power brokers. Yahoo! plays the same game with ownership of Chinese 'what's on your mind' companies and is another player aiming to be top dog of the new 'search' franchise. Yahoo! has recently made some good moves helping the Chinese government track down dissenters. It will be up to Google/Baidu to trump Yahoo!'s latest strong performance so that Google/Baidu can win favor of the latest Chinese red emperor.
