Blog Filtering China

The Open Net Initiative has published a short bulletin called Filtering by Domestic Blog Providers in China. It concludes that the Chinese government has increased its resources to control (the rise of) blogs. Providers are shut down, and they may only offer services if they implement filtering software. The software filters on keywords related to sensitive political content, and demonstrates that besides (offline) access regulation the government also actively pursues technical online control.
