"he Chinese government has passed a new regulation to ban the uploading and downloading of Internet material without the copyright holder's permission. Under the regulation, effective from July 1, anyone uploading texts, and performance, sound and video recordings to the Internet for downloading, copying or other use, must acquire the permission of the copyright owners and pay the required fee.

The production, import and supply of devices that are capable of evading or breaching technical measures of copyright protection and technical services are prohibited under the regulation.

The regulation was drawn up on the principle that it must balance the interests of copyright owners, Internet service providers and users of the copyrighted works, said an official with the Legal Affairs Office of the State Council.

It prohibits the intentional evasion or breach of technical measures to prevent copyright violations. The production, import and supply of devices capable of evading or breaching technical measures of copyright protection and technical services are also banned."

Official announcements usually fall in two categories:

1) Just for show, but actually not doing much in reality.

2) A serious and sincere attempt to make changes.

You decide which this one falls under. :D
