Popular websites that carried movies and other material which breached copyright laws have been closed in China as well as in many other countries. This seems to be almost a worldwide strike.
BTChina, a popular video sharing website, displayed a notice saying the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT) had ordered it to close because it had no license to provide audio and video content. Our illustration shows that as of 8:33pm yesterday evening it was still up and running. UUbird.com, a similar site, had a message that said it would delete all links for downloading TV series and films by mid-February "to comply with the State’s laws and regulations."
