What China's Anti-Terrorism Law Means For ISPs and Domain Names

The State Council of China has published the Anti-Terrorism Law of the People's Republic of China, to combat the threat of terrorism. Service providers of various industries (including telecommunication and Internet service providers or ISPs) must comply--e.g., verify the true identity of the users/customers before they can provide any services to such users/customers, provide assistance and technological support (including technological interface and decryption) to the public security bureaus and national security authorities for the purpose of preventing and investigating terrorism activities, take security measures and adopt monitoring mechanisms to identify terrorism and extremism information. Presumably these provisions may also apply to domain name registry operators and registrars.
