The Cyberspace Administration of China recently issued the document Provisions on Ecological Governance of Network Information Content for the purposes of establishing and improving a comprehensive network governance system, creating a ‘clean’ cyberspace, and dealing with illegal and harmful information.

They stipulate that  network information content producers must not make, copy or publish any illegal information that jeopardises national security, divulges state secrets, subverts state power, undermines national unity, damages the reputation or interests of the state, advocates terrorism or extremism, or instigates terrorist or extremist activities. Network information content producers must also take measures to prevent and resist the production, reproduction and dissemination of ‘undesirable’ information.
