Yahoo, Inc. is/was mostly owned by the Japanese (to be precise, he has bloodline of Korean), named Masayoshi SON from the beginning (in 1996 or around?). Mr. SON is one of the most famous entrepreneurs in Japan. So, Yahoo! is very popular in Japan. I can not think that Baidu can beat neither Yahoo! Japan nor Google Japan. Mr. SON is the owner and CEO of SOFTBANK, K.K.".

Hmm, I can't forecast the success but, A degree of success seems predictable.
