After Internet regulations, now SMS regulations in China

Just in the beginning of this week, I wrote about the introduction of regulations regarding Internet content in China, which already followed tightened media controls. Now, to top this up, the Chinese Government continues to become a best practice example in blocking content and information across a country.

"Telecom Administration Bureau under the Ministry of Information Industry (MII), revealed that "Relations of SMS Communication Service Management" (Regulations), China's first set of SMS regulations, will be officially published recently." This means that "those who distribute obscene and eroticism information with SMS via cell phones will have to bear legal liability."

I wonder where the political content is - is it possible to send SMS regarding democracy, or Taiwan? Just kidding, okay!
