China’s Internet censorship, regulatory control, and new cyber security law
Speaker: Professor Yue Liu, Executive Director of Asia Pacific Institute for Cyber Law Studies and legal consultant for mainland China, Schodt Law Firm​

Place: Domus Nova rom 35​4


Since its first Internet connection with the global computer network in 1994, China has witnessed explosive Internet development. China replaced the United States as the largest Internet user of the world by the end of 2008. Although China enjoyed tremendous economic benefits from Internet development, the Chinese government has tried to maintain tight control over the telecommunications industry and the public Internet use, in order to protect the internet sovereignty.

 

In this presentation we will review historical development of Internet use in China and focus on China’s Internet censorship and its regulatory control. Next, we explore the major content of the latest cyber security law of China, and introduce the background of these regulations. Finally the characteristics and weakness of the upcoming cybersecurity law of China will be summarized.
