The Chinese version includes a moderator function, so that any content which might offend the Chinese government can be removed before it appears online.
Baidupedia also includes a FAQ section that dissuades writers from attacking the current government, along with its institutions and systems, or putting forward a "negative view of life".
In setting up the new service, Baidu claimed that it was unaware that the Wikipedia online encyclopaedia has been blocked by the Chinese government since 2005.
