China Steps Up Internet Video Control

The AP, via the Washington Post, reports that new rules limiting sites are set to go into effect tomorrow:

The rules are aimed at expanding a Chinese censorship system that tries to block Internet use to spread dissent while promoting it for business and education. Communist leaders are especially anxious about unflattering video showing up online ahead of the Beijing Olympics in August, a major prestige project.

…The rules came in a surprise announcement Dec. 29, just four weeks before they take effect _ a move possibly driven by urgency about getting controls in place ahead of the Summer Games.
