Chinese regulators call for legislation to protect online privacy

Beijing, Fri, 09 Mar 2012 ANI

Beijing, Mar 9(ANI): Chinese lawmakers and political advisers have called for a legislation that would require micro-bloggers to register their real names, and laws that would further safeguard personal information.

 

Chinese users will be required to register their real identities on micro blogs to post messages from March 16 onwards, according to regulations set by the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

 

Several members of the National People's Congress and the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference National Committee said they want to see the rules incorporated into law.

 

"Registering real names on micro blogs would curb the spread of rumors and establish online credibility. It is definitely a good thing. But personal information also needs to be protected, so I think China should introduce laws to safeguard Internet information," the China Daily quoted a CPPCC member Guo Wei, as saying.

 

"The dubious credibility of online news has resulted in a loss of trust. Therefore, identity authentication is a global and necessary trend," he added.

 

A researcher, Tong Guohua, 54, said the Internet as a public communication platform posed risks to netizens' privacy.

 

Guohua called for more effective legal protection and more stringent monitoring to protect netizens' privacy.

 

China has 513 million netizens, according to a China Internet Network Information Center report. (ANI)
