Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't Second Life already have a presence in China? Or maybe Anshe Chung Studios is just a figment of our collective imagination?

Content filters are a nice idea in theory, but they don't work very well, even for text (think email spam). Making content filters for 3D objects or animations is even harder. What if a bunch of avatars contort their bodies to spell "Free Tibet" on the front lawn of a Chinese citizen?

It seems to me that the only way for China to be reasonably sure that their citizens are protected from outsiders (and their ideas) is for China to build a walled garden, accessible only to Chinese citizens. Maybe content from outside China could be approved on a case-by-case bases as with There.com.
