Cultural Progress
A Sound Online Environment
China is to require real-name registration for online shows
Edited by Lu Yan 

The Ministry of Culture is making it compulsory for presenters of streamed online shows to register with their real names.

The rules oblige operators of online shows to identify presenters via interviews or video calls, and apply for licenses from provincial cultural authorities which will be filed with the ministry.

The regulation also states that operators should obtain a permit from the ministry before offering channels to presenters from the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR), Macao SAR, Taiwan and foreign countries.

Operators must carry out real-time supervision of performances and keep records of all the shows.

A mechanism for handling emergencies should be established, and once they detect content that violates laws and regulations in the shows, operators must suspend services, preserve relevant data, and report the matter to authorities.

A blacklist will be created to strengthen management of online performances and ensure the sector's healthy and orderly growth.

The regulation will come into effect on December 1.
