Media regulation

56.com back online

Video sharing website 56.com is back online, more than a month after it was taken offline, apparently because SARFT was displeased with the company.

In other news, Youku.com CEO Victor Ku has publicly confirmed that Youku had received a video website license from SARFT, as previously reported on Danwei.
