Free speech in contrast (or lack of it)



This article details the Chinese governments tightening of control over what foreign tv, books, newspapers and other media imports. To quote from the article “Import of cultural products contrary to regulations will be punished according to the circumstances, and in serious cases the import license will be revoked,”


“Co-productions by Chinese and foreign film and television companies will face stricter censorship, foreign magazines and newspapers can be sold only through state-controlled agencies, and imported Internet games face strengthened censorship.”

The move is said to be an effort to control foreign influences on the culture. They point out that they have a “cultural trade deficit.”
