Beijing set to step up net curbs

By James Kynge in Beijing - 21 Mar 2000 22:13GMT  

China's government is set to impose greater control on the internet 
by fostering state-owned websites and publishing a plethora of new 
regulations, according to industry executives and lawyers.  

The moves appear motivated primarily by a desire to supervise 
internet content, inhibit the development of competition for the 
traditional state media, and channel monetary gains from China's 
internet fever toward state concerns.
