A Danwei reader alerted us to the following warning recently sent out on China Mobile News:
Translated, it reads:
“Individual will face 100,000 yuan fine for uploading Olympic Games
video to the Internet.
On (June) 12, Xu Chao, deputy director of the General National
Copyright Administration of China, said that individual and websites
will face fines as high as 100,000 yuan for uploading recordings of
Olympic Games video to the internet.”
How effectively this stern proclamation can be enforced is still to be seen.
