The Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) recently beefed up the regulation of live-streaming studios, handling more than 5,400 shooting videos that violate the country's laws and internet regulations.

According to the government body, it has invalidated 1,401 live-streaming accounts violating pertinent laws and regulations, such as the Cybersecurity Law, Provisions for the Administration of Internet News Information Services and Provisions on the Administration of Internet Live-Streaming Services, and removed 370,000 short videos posted online.

The now-deleted webcasts were targeted for contents including songs about drug abuse, users flaunting their wealth, humors and performances which catered to low and vulgar tastes. 

According to the CAC, the crackdown is aimed at creating a "clean"cyberspace environment for online users, especially those in adolescence. The CAC also emphasized that its online monitoring and censorship will be continued and intensified.
