Administrative Regulations on the Internet Expression in China: From the Perspective of Microblog



With rapid development of the Internet, cyberspace is no longer the altar of “free speech and expression”, but also the source of “fraudulent, extreme, terror and other irrational speech”.

Therefore, it is necessary to regulate and supervise the irrational speech properly. However, the traditional regulation way— “containment” instead of “dredge” has been outdated. Only to establish a new regulation mode: “Government-led participation, industry self-discipline, cyber citizens self-regulation”, can we stop network chaos effectively.
