Not really my field of research but I thought this may be of interest. To summarise from a recent newspaper article:
- The overall aim is that major websites become a force to ‘spread positive energy’.
- More specifically, it is recommended to improve ‘laws that regulate Internet use, cracking down on online crimes and building a safe online environment by strengthening Internet security are among the main goals’.
- For example, online defamation shall become ‘a "serious" offense if such a post is read 5,000 times or circulated over 500 times’.
- In addition, it says that ‘the government and many Web celebrities had reached a consensus, also known as the “seven bottom lines”, in which they agreed that influential microbloggers should abide by the law and protect national interests and social order, and uphold socialist ideals and morals’.
Ok, to clarify, I’m of course not talking about the UK (or German) government, but quoting from a newspaper that I read on my travels a few weeks ago (click on picture to enlarge; the article it’s also available here).
