Chinese authorities will continue to crack down on illegal live-streaming platforms and banned content. In a recent nationwide inspection of 50 major live-streaming platforms, 48 were penalized and 10 were shut down completely. More than 30,000 hosts and performers were punished, the Ministry of Culture announced.

A number of online platforms that broadcast obscene content were shut down, and 12 suspects are being criminally investigated, the National Office Against Pornographic and Illegal Publications announced.

The office said it would blacklist broadcasters who spread pornography during live-streaming, and those on the blacklist will be barred from the entire industry. It also urged operators of live-streaming platforms to vet their content more thoroughly, and to immediately block any illegal streams.
