BEIJING---Chinese authorities have pro-

Internet security law that would strengthen
protection of private information, ban
hacking activities and also allow author-

The National People s Congress, the coun-
try s highest legislative body, released the
text of the proposed law yesterday. It said
a legislative panel gave the proposal its first
reading in June and that it is seeking public
comment until August 5.
China s government considers cyberse-
curity to be crucial to national security, and
espouses the concept of Internet sovereignty,
treating its portion of cyberspace as its ter-
The proposed law says Internet operators
must take necessary steps to close security
loopholes to prevent possible cyberattacks.
It also criminalises any hacking activity.
The draft says Internet operators are obli-
gated to protect users personal data. It also
requires that users register their real names
to receive Internet service.
"China is faced with severe challenges in
terms of cybersecurity, such as cybercrimes
and breach of personal information," said
Tang Lan of the China Institute of Con-

China already has some of the most restrictive
Internet controls. It blocks popular Web sites such
as Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and various
Google services. Search results are severely filtered
to scrub out information deemed offensive to the
authorities, and online posts are routinely removed
if they are considered to have potential to unsettle
the public. Recently, Pu Zhiqiang, a prominent rights
lawyer, was indicted on criminal charges of fanning
ethnic hatred and provoking trouble for online com-
ments that questioned China s ethnic policies and
mocked some public figures.
Communications have been cut off in China s
restive Xinjiang region when authorities tried to
suppress information on violent ethnic clashes there.
The draft law says access to the Internet can be
restricted when there is a threat to public security,
a clause that has raised concerns because it does
not define what constitutes a threat.
"The worry is that it could be applied to normal
environmental protests or incidents when the public
is venting dissatisfaction," said Hu Xindou, a Bei-
jing-based economist. A bad law that restricts public
rights could be disastrous." (AP)
