"China Monday passed a controversial cybersecurity bill tightening restrictions on online freedom of speech and imposing new rules on online service providers, raising concerns it is further cloistering its heavily controlled internet. ... The law, which was approved by the National People's Congress Standing Committee, is largely focused on protecting the country's networks and private user information. But it also bans internet users from publishing a wide variety of information, including anything that damages 'national honour,' 'disturbs economic or social order' or is aimed at 'overthrowing the socialist system.'"
