Bloomberg title Beijing: China will stop restricting uploaders to only one match source Bloomberg article China is banning uploaders from uploading more than five videos to YouTube, the country’s main video-sharing service, and will not allow users to share more than two videos to their accounts.
The move comes after the U.S. blocked YouTube in August over allegations it had allowed foreign and domestic users to create videos without licenses.
The U.K., Australia, India and Germany are among the countries that have banned YouTube.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, the Ministry of Culture and Information Technology said that the “law on the protection of intellectual property and the rights of creators has been amended to allow uploaders only to upload one video per user per match,” the official Xinhua news agency reported.
The ministry also said it will work to promote the sharing of video content via the Internet.
The U.N. General Assembly in November passed a resolution that banned the use of the term “terrorist,” saying it could be used to refer to people involved in terrorism.
It said China had also violated the resolution by “providing support to terrorist organizations.”
