From Bloomberg (link):

China said it will fine distributors of illegally copied music, movies and other material over the Internet by as much as 100,000 yuan ($12,500) from July 1, putting pressure on search engines such as Baidu.com Inc.

Internet service providers, such as companies hosting Web sites on servers, must give authorities contact information for owners of sites that distribute pirated material, the State Council, China’s Cabinet, said in a statement dated May 18 and posted on its Web site today.
