China Vows Clean Online Games Within Five Years

From Reuters:

China plans to implement a five year program advocating clean online games, starting next year, an official from the General Administration of Press and Publication told an industry conference Wednesday.

Earlier this week, GAPP issued a notice warning against the illegal release of online games and declaring stricter control over the approval process. The notice criticized the release of pornographic and violent games by some companies on the Internet.

The “China Green Online Games Publishing Program” will be launched this year and the implementation begun next year, the Xinhua news agency said, citing remarks by Sun Shoushan, vice director of the GAPP, at an industry conference in Shanghai.
