Internet watchdog solicits public opinion on draft Internet management regulation
The Cyberspace Administration of China, the country's top Internet regulator, on Tuesday started soliciting public opinion on a draft regulation for Internet management.
The move aims to maintain good Internet order, protect the legal rights and interests of citizens, legal persons and other organizations and foster a clean cyberspace.
Internet content creators are banned from generating illegal information that violates basic principles stipulated by China's Constitution and harms national honor and interests, according to the draft.
They are also banned from spreading false information that disrupts economic and social order or information that instigates crimes.
The draft also asks Internet information service platforms that provide algorithm-based feed services to set up or improve manual intervention mechanisms.
In regulating the behavior of Internet content service users, the draft prohibits doxxing and fake social media followers and likes, among other irregularities.
The CAC will solicit opinions on the draft through October 10.
