Sergey Brin on Internet Freedom

Interviewed as part of a series of articles in The Guardian on who will 'own' the Internet, Sergey Brin (co-founder with Larry Page of Google) took exception to how his interview was used. However, in his rebuttal post on Google+, he made the following statement about the offensive on internet freedom by various governments:

Today, the primary threat by far to internet freedom is government filtering of political dissent. This has been far more effective than I ever imagined possible across a number of nations. In addition, other countries such as the US have come close to adopting very similar techniques in order to combat piracy and other vices. I believe these efforts have been misguided and dangerous.

Does this mean that Google will continue to challenge countries that want to control Google search results as China did?
