China Tightens Rules On Internet Cafes

From AFP:

Cybercafes in China that admit three or more underage patrons will have their licences revoked under the government’s latest effort to tighten controls on web access in the world’s largest online market.

The measure will also be applied to establishments that give rise to “major malignant cases” through admitting any number of underage customers — those under 18 — according to the rules posted on the culture ministry’s website.

The new regulations, posted on Tuesday, did not specify what would constitute a “major malignant case.”
