China government cracks down on ‘harmful’ music online

We’ve written before about moves in China to crack down on streaming services offering music without the necessary licences. Now a different kind of crackdown is happening there: one on “harmful” content on these services.

Reuters reported yesterday that from 1 January, online music services will be responsible for policing content that they make available – and could be punished if unacceptable songs slip through the net.
