Gabriela Kennedy’s Asia-Pacific column in the October issue of Computer Law & Security Review features the Mayer Brown article ‘China Releases Regulations on Internet Search Services and Mobile Apps’ by Gabriela Kennedy and Xiaoyan Zhang.

Gabriela and Xiaoyan discussed the new regulations released by the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) on internet search services and mobile apps in their article. The Administrative Provisions on Internet Information Search Services (the “Search Provisions”) and Administrative Provisions on Mobile Internet Applications Information Services (the “Mobile Provisions”) came into effect on 1 August 2016. The Search Provisions impose several new obligations on Internet information search service providers, while the Mobile Provisions govern mobile Internet application providers, with an aim to curtail the use of mobile apps that incite violence, terrorism, fraud or pornography , or infringe users’ privacy.
