China Issues New Rule Requiring Licence for People Live-Streaming News, Entertainment Content

“China’s most powerful internet regulator has formally set controls over the country’s thriving online broadcasting sector, requiring people live-streaming news and entertainment content to have a licence, among other rules,” Zhuang Pinghui reporting today in South China Morning Post. “The Cyberspace Administration issued the regulations on Friday, stipulating that those who host live-streaming news platforms as well as organizations managing the broadcasts have to get official permission to operate. Hosts live-streaming talent shows will also need a licence, according to the regulations. ... The regulations issued on Friday come months after China’s press and entertainment watchdog, the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television, ordered live-streaming platforms to apply for a ” network broadcasting licence” to operate.”
