China is famous for its stringent regulations and everyday monitoring of media content. Empowered by law and regulation, the state authorities govern the content industry through ownership control and the licensing system. So far individuals and entities outside the state’s control are not entitled to access the content production market, and the externally originated content is under strict supervision.

The effectiveness over media content control has crumbled dramatically, and for China in today’s world it is no longer simple to manage a rapidly changing media environment.
