A Danwei reader alerted us to the following warning recently sent out on China Mobile News:
个人上传奥运赛事录像最高罚10万 ---------------- 12日，国家版权局版权管理司副司长许超透露，个人录制奥运比赛实况后擅自上传，或者视频网站盗播奥运赛事，都将面临最高10万元的处罚。(北青网)
Translated, it reads:
"Individual will face 100,000 yuan fine for uploading Olympic Games video to the Internet.
How effectively this stern proclamation can be enforced is still to be seen.
