The document asks all online game users to register with their identification information and strictly limits the window and total length of time for minors to access online games on a daily basis.
It also bans paid online game services for users under the age of eight and puts a limit on the amount of money minors aged above 8 can pay for online game services on a daily and monthly basis.
