Apple CEO Expects Forbidden Apps in China to Be Re-Allowed

Apple CEO Tim Cook said Wednesday he is optimistic that a number of banned computer applications under China's strict Internet law will eventually be restored.

Speaking at a business forum in southern China, Cook also denies criticism who protested his performance a few days earlier at an internet conference promoting Beijing's view of internet censorship.

Cook's appearance on Sunday at the Chinese-organized World Internet Conference attracted criticism from many US activists and politicians. They say Apple should do more to counter China's restrictions on the internet.

Cook says he strongly supports freedom but also assumes that foreign companies need to comply with local regulatory authorities in which they operate.

Cook said he did not care to be criticized for cooperating with China because he believes a change may happen if companies operate rather than take a dodge and then shout protest. [ab/uh]
