China’s State Administration of Radio Film and Television has released a report on an audit of the Internet audio-visual services in China and it has ordered ten websites to suspend their online video and Internet music operations.

The Chinese websites ordered to suspend audio-visual services include the Guangdong-based Tvsou.com and Tsxz.com; the Guangxi-based 3gdd.cn; Jiangsu-based Nanjingbbs.cn; Zhejiang-based Feesee.com, Wzmo.com, Ourdvd.net, Lifeboke.cn, and 0570k.com; and the Chongqing-based Woaibt.com. There is no word yet on when these websites will be allowed to open their online video and audio services or the specific nature of their respective infractions.

In addition, SARFT says it will take further measures to clean up those websites that operated the audio-visual services without the necessary “License for Publication of Audio-Visual Programs through an Information Network”.

At the same time, 17 websites, including Verycd.com and 9you.com, were warned by SARFT of various administrative infractions. Other websites that are warned by the SARFT include the Guangdong-based Wap.2xp.cn and Oeeee.com; Henan-based 371dvd.com; the Jiangsu-based Offid.com.cn; the Shanghai-based Ucclub.cn, Neotv.cn, Verycd.com, 9you.com, Dofor.cn, Podlook.com, Jpseek.com, Ylx88.cn, Ttdv123.com, Friends6.com, Gamestv.com.cn, and Mofile.com; and the Sichuan-based Fiwen.cn.
