China doesn’t want its kids to be like us

October 7, 2010

I’m doing research for a group project on the Chinese information policy for one of my courses (SI 507: Information Policy Analysis and Design). This led me to a Chinese government white paper on their Internet policy as a whole, from which this quote caught my attention:

The Law of the People’s Republic of China on the Protection of Minors stipulates that the state shall take measures to prevent minors from overindulging in the Internet[.]

(That’s from this page.)

I’m not sure how I feel about that, but it seemed well worth sharing here.
