China Doesn't Like Barcodes

Azalea software has been selling barcodes worldwide for years now. That includes China, or at least it used to. We seem to have had one visitor on 23sep07 from Beijing and then our traffic from China seems to have dried up overnight. And we even have pages in Chinese too.

The only explanation we can come up with is that our URL hit someone's desk and our about us page did what it's supposed to: tell the world who and what we are.

Guess the Chinese don't like the Tibetan Technology Center or the Burma Media Association, Electronic Frontier Foundation or any one of a number of groups we support. Speaks volumes about Beijing, now don't it?

Our response? Tor. Remember Comrades: information (and people) want to be free!

Thank you for guiding us towards another worthy project we can support!

    The Chinese probably cloned one of your software packages and are now selling it themselves.
