China wants to ban night use of computer before the age of 18
Chinese government is considering a bill on banning the use of PCs and mobile devices at night time. It is aimed at persons under 18. It is caused by the youth addiction on videogames, pretty common within the country. If the law is adopted, it will become effective this March.
To obey the decree, parents or foster parents of minor citizens will be obliged to install special software on computer devices, blocking their use from 12 a.m. to 8 a.m. A curfew time will be also provided in country’s computer clubs. In case of failure to comply with requirements, they will be fined or even closed.back to list
