When the famous Internet video-sharing web site, Youtube was blocked in China in March 2009 nobody thought such a replica of YouTube would emerged.
At the height of the riots in Tibet in 2008, China's 384 million internet users were not able to access Youtube.
YouTube's lookalike in China is YouTubecn.com.
But the issue did not end there as Google, owner of YouTube, which was recently made inaccessible in China, was replaced with a similar-looking search engine called, Goojje.
In January this year, Google announced it will no longer continue providing search engine services to China because of cyber-security issues, two years after it was launched in 2006.
Google's spokesman commented in an email:
"The only comment I can give you right now is just to confirm that we're not affiliated," spokeswoman Jessica Powell said.
