Chinese authorities continue to struggle with the anonymity of the Internet

Henceforth Chinese video services is allowed to host at only those movies whose author confirmed his identity by providing them with all necessary documents.
The first wake-up call with respect to tightening rules for publishing user-generated content in China was an appeal to the Government of China’s largest Internet service providers Sina and Youku in 2012. That’s when the government decided that providers should be held personally responsible for any content that users post in the services it online services. In continuation of this social program in the same year in the vast Chinese Internet, a series of instructive short films that tell about the rules of conduct in the World Wide Web, and also criticized the vulgarity and brutality, so much common in today’s online community.
In late 2012, the Chinese authorities have introduced mandatory use their real names when registering Chinese analogues service Twitter – Sina Weibo and Tencent Weibo. Now it’s time to introduce such restrictions and national video service.

Now fill in the network such video will be much harder, and if we talk openly – publish provocative videos will now simply life threatening.
