The crackdown, christened “Operation For Tomorrow,” is aimed at Web sites offering unregistered playing platforms or services for gamers that can be downloaded.
Unlicensed Internet cafes, known as “black Web bars,” will be closed down and supervision will be tightened over legal cafes, the report said.
Online pornography will also be attacked under the crackdown, the report said.
The Chinese Government has a special relationship with the Internet.
- Anonymous blogging is forbidden in China,
- Internet addiction seems to be a very big problem in China in need of rigorous treatment
- Web sites that offer streaming video in the country will need to obtain a permit to operate.
Like most such measures, the crackdown seeks to increase government supervision and control over services for vulnerable groups.
Probably a creative manner of censorship by the Chinese government.
