They'll ban our beloved chinese sellers on ebay from making a bit more than ends meat, think of how screwed we'd be if we were forced to buy green laser pointers for example for 20 bucks each instead of 5 just because we have to deal with a middleman ON EBAY!!!!!
Kind of sucks for Chinese. Alot of small companies start off with an idea, and an internet site. Considering how we are moving more and more towards technology it seems like the worlds fastest growing economy just shot itself in the foot.
it's the same as gun control, put everything on a list because you want them to be in the right hands, when things gets out of control and people would actually use them against the government, take them away one by one from their homes.
Aren't you all taking this out of proportion? This simply means instead of anyone ANONYMOUSLY creating a domain you need to "fill out papers".
Whats the difference, really? (apart from a bit of extra time)
Saves all the .cn from being used as spammers etc.
Surprised no one else thought of it first

It's a problem because for example you start a blog or a news site and maybe the government doesn't like an article or users post comments critical of the government... so it makes it easier to arrest you and send you to jail.
All my friends here who can read English use VPN for twitter\youtube, sometimes google. At least I can check wikipedia and toms at any time. The thing is, we don't care what the government do, coz they never listen to you directly, and you just can't expect them to be perfect, given we are a young country with only 60 years. Yet they know your concerns, and they are making effort to meet the requirements of the most people(they think) for it's the only way to keep their government. Instead of less and less freedoms, our country is becoming more and more international, if you'r interested in the history of China, you may find how the government treat our people inhumanly ever since the found of our nation until 10 years ago.
As long as the people of China have access to the Web, then they have access to information and it is this information that drives democracy and social revolution. I don't see this as be a violation of citizens rights.
Besides porn and some of the above mentioned material, it may also be an attempt to shut down some of these scam sites. Google "uggs for cheap" and scroll down the page and notice all of the URLs that have been eliminated. There is a big problem with scum in China setting-up bogus sites. My daughter was going to order some and I noticed that something was not right...the site has since been eliminated. So, if the Chinese government has to do something like this to protect global consumers then I am all for it. Now if only the Nigerian government would take some control of its scam factories.
