Below, the left-hand screenshot was taken on May 28, 2014, and shows that when a user in Japan searches for “Tiananmen Massacre” (天安门大屠杀) in Chinese on Baidu.com, Baidu informs them that “In accordance with relevant laws, regulations, and policies, some search results have not been displayed.” (根据相关法律法规和政策，部分搜索结果未予显示。) Baidu restricts search results to about a dozen websites that under the direct control of the central government and the Communist Party, such as:
China Youth Daily
China Radio International
The same search done on Baidu’s Japan search engine, Baidu.jp, returns apparently uncensored results, with the first three results being from Youtube.
This screenshot shows that when a user searches Baidu.com for “Tiananmen Massacre” on Youtube.com, they are not shown a censorship notice, but rather are told that Baidu cannot find any search results.
