Real-name registration starts for live streaming presenters

Updated 2016-11-29 21:48:19 Xinhua

A regulation on live streaming comes into effect on Thursday making it compulsory for presenters to register with their real names.

The regulation by the Cyberspace Administration of China bans use of live streams to undermine national security, destabilize society, disturb social order, infringe upon others' rights and interests, or disseminate inappropriate content, including pornography.

The regulation obliges service providers to censor content and blacklist users who break the rules, prohibiting them from registering again.

Several other regulations also come into force on Thursday.

Privately owned business will now only require one certificate, instead of the current two -- a business license and a tax certificate -- as part of latest efforts to simplify administrative procedures and encourage startups, according to Zhang Mao, chief of the State Administration for Industry and Commerce.

The law on asset appraisal, first drafted in 2006, will also take effect on Thursday. The new law allows certified appraisers who have passed national exams, as well as those who have expertise and hands-on experience in asset evaluation, to practice asset appraisal.

A regulation on special funds for philosophy and social science will allow more who study in these fields to be paid.

The new plan on dealing on air pollution in Beijing will be implemented on Dec. 15, further cutting the number and type of vehicles allowed on the roads when an alert is issued.
