Clamp on child-related obscene content

Finance | Reuters and Bloomberg 22 Jul 2021

The Cyberspace Administration of China said that it summoned representatives of Kuaishou (1024), Tencent's (0700) messaging tool QQ, Alibaba's (9988) Taobao and Weibo for spreading child-related obscene content.

CAC said in a statement it ordered the platforms to "rectify" and "clean up" all illegal content, and that it would fine the platforms.

The penalties were issued as part of a campaign to tackle online content deemed "harmful to the physical and mental well-being of minors." It said there will be a 'zero tolerance' approach toward issues that hurt minors."

The cyberspace regulator is also planning to tackle under-aged live-streaming, the quality of online education platforms, violent and sexually explicit animation, online communities and celebrity fan clubs as part of its campaign, the statement added.
