Rechte von Nutzern weiter gestärkt, Betreiber von Plattformen sind zu mehr Transparenz verpflichtet (German language)

On November 16, 2022, the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) issued the revised Administrative Regulations on Internet Comment Threading Services. Just one month later, the 16-article regulations came into force, in which the control obligations of network operators and service providers are specified. More transparency should strengthen the rights of users.

The new rules apply to providers and users of Internet commenting services in China. For purposes of the Terms, “Comment Posting Services” means those services provided by websites, other applications, and any Internet platform for public expression or with the ability to mobilize the public to post comments of any kind. This also applies to blogs, chat rooms, streaming services and mini-programs.
