Comments in German, English or Chinese on the new draft given before August 31st will be used to provide a report for our partner, the Legislative Affairs Commission of the Standing Committee of the NPC.

Website on information technology and e-commerce law in China
Jörg Hladjk has asked me to post the following announcement:
There is a new website (www.china-law.org) that provides comprehensive links to Chinese law on information technology and e-commerce in China. The information on the website and all its links are in English. It has six different categories.
In addition to English versions of the relevant legislation in this area, it has links to articles on several topics such as like internet control and e-commerce. It also has links to the CNNIC's latest statistical reports on Internet development in China.
The website is maintained by Jörg Hladjk, a German PhD student at Johann Wolfgang Goethe-University in Frankfurt specialising in IT and e-commerce law.
