New Chinese Law to Tighten Grip on Live Streaming Services Online

BEIJING - A new Chinese regulation seeks to tighten the hold on live video transmission or streaming services online, requiring streaming platform providers to obtain certificates and act in accordance with current norms.

Official Chinese news agency Xinhua said Friday the law, set to come into force on Dec. 1, will require online live news providers to have their content approved by censor bodies before making it public.

Currently, over 300 companies in China provide platforms for live video transmission on the web.

The new norm, approved by the country's Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC), also says such providers must have trained staff to put an immediate stop to broadcasts that violate laws.

The companies will also have to classify their broadcasts based on content and number of users, and blacklist any individuals infringing this or other laws.

Xinhua cited an official from the CAC, the body responsible for internet censorship in China, as saying some of these streaming services were found to be spreading pornography, violence, rumors and fraud, remarking they run counter to "socialist core values" and have a negative impact on young people.
