Live-streaming platforms reprimanded for disseminating vulgar content
BEIJING, June 24 (Xinhua) -- China's Internet watchdog has directed 10 live-streaming platforms to rectify their problems like disseminating vulgar content, authorities said Tuesday.
The order was issued by the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) and relevant authorities after they jointly inspected 31 major live-streaming services in China.
The 10 platforms, including douyu.com, bilibili.com and huya.com, breached cyber regulations by streaming vulgar content.
According to the CAC, other violations by major platforms included underdressed hosts, verbal abuse and online gambling.
A record number of new users signed up for live-streaming accounts during the COVID-19 epidemic.
Live-streaming platforms must conform to their social responsibilities and strengthen regulations to provide high-quality content for the public, the CAC noted. Enditem
