China Explains Internet Situation in Whitepaper

eldavojohn (898314) writes "In a new whitepaper, China has declared the Internet to be 'the crystallization of human wisdom' and officially issued what appears to be a a defense of its policies on web censorship while at the same time making contradicting statements like "Chinese citizens fully enjoy freedom of speech on the Internet" and (in the same paper) "Laws and regulations clearly prohibit the spread of information that contains content subverting state power, undermining national unity [or] infringing upon national honour and interests." The paper also claims some interesting — if not humorous — superlatives like "China is one of the countries suffering most from hacking." On the positive side, this thirty one page document might be offered as an operating guide for businesses like Google looking to understand exactly what the law is surrounding the Internet in China. Clearly contradictions arise when one reads this text but it's a rare glimpse of transparency in China's regulations."
