More rules on internet posting, commenting services

China's internet watchdog has proposed a draft regulation that would require social media services and video platforms to review comments posted by users before they are published.
 

The new rules demand platform operators to employ a content moderation team that "matches the scale of their service", and to improve the professional quality of staff responsible for reviewing content, according to a document released on Friday by the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC).
 

The regulation would tighten existing rules, launched in 2017, that mandated companies to review user comments only under news content.
 

The proposed rules also specify the punishment associated with violations: operators that fail to observe the regulation face warnings, fines, and suspension of their commenting features or even the entire service.
 

The previous regulation only stated that "relevant authorities would take actions on service providers that violate the rules, in accordance with relevant laws and regulations".
 

In line with the existing rules, the draft stipulates that social media users should register with their real identities before leaving comments. It also says that users who violate the rules may be warned, barred from commenting, asked to delete their comments, or have their account suspended or deactivated.
 

Rules prohibiting the use of bots or human commenters to "spread information that disturbs the normal order and misleads public opinion" remain unchanged, as are provisions that say users should be "blacklisted for serious breaches of rules" and "banned from accessing the service or opening new accounts".
 

正在征求意见!国家网信办拟加强互联网跟帖评论服务管理

国家互联网信息办公室17日公布《互联网跟帖评论服务管理规定(修订草案征求意见稿)》,向社会公开征求意见。征求意见稿规定,跟帖评论服务提供者应当严格落实跟帖评论服务管理主体责任,依法履行对注册用户进行真实身份信息认证、建立健全用户个人信息保护制度、建立健全信息安全管理制度等义务。
 

征求意见稿明确,跟帖评论服务是指互联网站、应用程序以及其他具有舆论属性或社会动员能力的网站平台,以发帖、回复、留言、“弹幕”等方式,为用户提供发表文字、符号、表情、图片、音视频等信息的服务。
 

征求意见稿提出,跟帖评论服务提供者应当建立用户分级管理制度,对用户的跟帖评论行为开展信用评估,根据信用等级确定服务范围及功能,对严重失信的用户应列入黑名单,停止对列入黑名单的用户提供服务,并禁止其通过重新注册等方式开设账号使用跟帖评论服务。
 

此外,还规定跟帖评论服务提供者、跟帖评论服务使用者和公众账号生产运营者不得通过发布、删除、推荐跟帖评论信息以及其他干预跟帖评论信息呈现的手段侵害他人合法权益或者谋取非法利益。不得利用软件、雇佣商业机构及人员等方式散布信息,恶意干扰跟帖评论正常秩序,误导公众舆论。
