A few video sharing websites are shut

March 29, 2008 5:15am CST
THE State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT) ordered 25 websites to stop offering video sharing services last week. Mop.com was one of the top video sharing websites in China. These websites either failed to obtain licenses or their videos contained pornographic or violent content, said SARFT. Last year, the administration required the newly established websites of this kind to be state-owned or run by state-controlled companies. How do you view this? Do you think the SARFT is reasonable to shut down those websites? Should they monitor pornographic or violent contents?

I don't think youtube have the same problem. It's a website registered in the US it seems. So it's none of the business of the Chinese Gov.
