Schroecklich: Chinesische Wohlfahrt.............

technology may be imported. This is a change from previous rules which said
that imported encryption schemes could be imported contingent on approval
of the baomi guanli weiyuanhui.

parts that are imported for assembly in China and certainly it will affect
e-commerce.  Indeed, my sources tell me that the new rules are intended to
mark off a protected Chinese space in e-commerce.
