This is the VOA Economics Report. Special English 这里是 VOA 慢速英语经济报道。
Microsoft has fought legal battles with officials in Europe and the United States over competition in the
微软曾为个人电脑市场竞争力与欧洲和美国 官员们进行了一场法律之战。现在,微软又 在起诉谷歌,说其妨碍市场竞争。微软向欧 盟委员会控诉谷歌不公平的控制欧洲搜索引 擎市场。
personal computer market. But now Microsoft is accusing Google of being anti-competitive. A complaint to the European Google of Commission unfairly accuses the
controlling
Internet search market in Europe.
Google is already talking to the 谷歌已经与欧盟委员会展开谈话,并称,愿 commission about the issue and says it 意向任何人解释自己的业务工作。 is happy to explain to anyone how its business works. Google also faces other issues. Gmail users in China began reporting problems with Google's e-mail service in late February. The problems came as news of the revolutions in the Arab world filled the Internet and there were online calls for protests in China. 谷歌还面临者其他一些问题。中国 Gmail 用 户从二月末开始反应谷歌的电子邮件服务存 在的问题。问题出现之际,网上充满了关于 阿拉伯世界革命的新闻,在中国,一些人通 过网络要求抗议。

accusations unacceptable. But Google 鲍威尔表示,公司坚持早前的评论。 spokeswoman Jessica Powell said the company stood by its earlier comments. JESSICA POWELL: "This is a government blockage, carefully designed to look like the problem is with Gmail." Google is the world leader in Internet search. But in China, the biggest search engine is Baidu. And this week, China's largest Internet media company, Sina, dropped Google's search engine from its website. Sina says it is using its own technology. An estimated four hundred fifty million Chinese are online -- about half of all Internet users in Asia. Last year, Google said a cyberattack from China had attempted to get information from the Gmail accounts of human rights activists. Google also expressed concerns about censorship. So Google relocated its Chinese search engine from the mainland to Hong Kong. The company is also facing new problems at home. A federal judge in New York has ruled against its plan to put millions of books online. Google wants to create a digital library of all the world's books. It reached a one hundred twenty-five million dollar deal in two thousand eight with groups representing writers and publishers. Google agreed to create a system to pay copyright holders when their works are used online. 杰西卡鲍威尔:“这是政府精心设计的封锁, 看起来好像是 Gmail 出了问题。”
谷歌是互联网搜索领域的领导者。 但在中国, 最大的搜索引擎是百度。本周,中国最大的 互联网媒体公司??新浪,将谷歌搜索引擎 从其网站上删除。新浪表示将利用自己的技 术。
据估计,中国大约有
  4.5 亿互联网用户?? 大约占亚洲所有互联网用户的一半。
去年,谷歌表示,来自中国的网络攻击企图 从人权活动积极分子的 Gmail 帐户上获取信 息。谷歌还对审查制度表示关注。所以谷歌 将中文搜索引擎从内地迁到香港。
该公司在其国内也面临着新的问题。纽约一 名联邦法官反对该公司将数百万册图书在互 联网上共享的计划。
谷歌希望建立一个拥有全世界所有图书的数 字图书馆。2008 年,谷歌公司与代表作家 和出版商的团体达成了
  1.25 亿美元的协议。 谷歌同意成立一个体系,在网络上使用相关 作品时会向版权所有者支付一定的报酬。

But he left open the possibility for a new plan. On a similar issue, Baidu says it has removed almost three million documents from its library. Writers have complained that Baidu did not have permission for their works to appear on its document-sharing site. 在类似的事件中,百度表示已经从自己的图 书馆中删除了大约 300 万份文件。作家们投 诉称,百度未经过他们的允许就将他们的作 品发表在文件分享网站上。
