Online to be hit with watchdog video ban

CHINA has banned the broadcast of foreign films, television programs and cartoons online without permission.

All videos shown online will have to get copyright and broadcast licenses from The State Administration of Radio Film and Television, The Beijing News reported today.

Imported films and teleplays shown on video Websites will be most affected.

Video websites need a great deal of content and will not be able to meet the demands of netizens if every imported program needs to have state permission, an editor surnamed Yang from the video Website said.

Another source from the leading Chinese video Website said there were no details about the ban and it has yet to influence Website contents.
