Chinese authorities will tighten their control over Internet resources to shield businesses and business representatives from defamation, misleading information, and improper publication of confidential information, reported the People's Republic of China's Cyberspace Administration.

The actions are intended to enhance the business climate, as stated in the disseminated "Requirements for the execution of work in the consideration of complaints about the information of Internet resources that violate the rights of companies," based on the Internet Security Law and the Civil Code of the PRC.

A person who objects to the publication of specific material on websites should explain their complaints in writing, provide their name and last name, and offer contact information. Additionally, he or she must have proof that the rights of a specific person or legal entity have been violated, such as through the posting of false or deceptive comments.
