China shackles instant messaging on news

A new set of rules in China requires all IMS users to provide their real name to register an account and sign agreements with service providers to abide "Seven Bottom Lines". Effectively, this means users will have to abide by laws and regulations, which uphold the socialist system and national interests among other things. The rules further restrain people's right to use the public platform to post pieces of news reports.
