wikipedia blocked in china in all languages!

 

internet censorship researchers found that wikipedia had joined thousands of other websites which cannot be accessed in china.

 

the country had previously banned the chinese language version of the site, but the block has now been expanded.

 

wikimedia said it had received “no notice” of the move.

 

in a statement, the foundation said: “in late april, the wikimedia foundation determined that wikipedia was no longer accessible in china. after closely analyzing our internal traffic reports, we can confirm that wikipedia is currently blocked across all language versions.”

 

the free community-edited encyclopedia has been intermittently blocked by authorities around the world.

 

in 2017, the site was blocked in turkey and it has been blocked intermittently in venezuela this year.

man detained in china for his “illegal” joke

a man has been detained in eastern china for giving his dogs “illegal” names, it’s reported.

01

according to popular newspaper beijing news, a dog breeder in his early 30s surnamed ban in eastern anhui province was summoned by the police on monday, after posting on mobile messenger wechat that he had two new dogs, named chengguan and xieguan.

the names attracted controversy because they refer to government and civil service workers respectively.

“chengguan” are officials employed in urban areas to tackle low-level crime, and “xieguan” are informal community workers such as traffic assistants.

the paper says that mr. ban gave the dogs the names “for fun“, but the authorities have failed to see the funny side – particularly with regards to the former.

the yingzhou police said that they had immediately launched an investigation into the man, who they say had issued “insulting information… against law enforcement personnel“.

 

they added that “in accordance with the relevant provisions of the people’s republic of china law on public security“, he must spend 10 days in an administrative detention center in the city of xiangyang.

a police officer surnamed li told beijing news that mr. ban had been increasingly provocative on his wechat account, and says that his actions had “caused great harm to the nation and the city’s urban management, in terms of their feelings“.

mr. ban says he regrets his actions, with beijing news quoting him as saying “i didn’t know the law; i didn’t know this was illegal.

 

while some are of the view that he was “looking for trouble“, his arrest has been met with much shock on the popular sina weibo microblog.

 

many users voice concern about the conditions under which mr. ban was detained. “can you tell me which law stipulates that dogs can’t be called chengguan?” one user asks. another asks: “what other words could you be imprisoned for?

 

some users have been joking that mr. ban was detained for “suspected subversion of state power” or “revealing state secrets“, implying that the chengguan is, actually, dog.

omg! samsung&huawei unexpectedly agree to settle patents dispute

on april 16th, 2019, apple and qualcomm settled the patent fight. on may 14th, 2019, huawei and samsung have also settled patent disputes globally over more than 40 lawsuits in 8 years.

01
huawei & samsung

 

 

 

in 2011, cross-licensing patent issues between huawei and samsung patent have been negotiated many times and there was no result.

in 2016, the two mobile phone manufacturers sued each other for breach of contract and patent infringement. in 2017, samsung compensate for huawei’s economic loss of 80 million yuan for infringement of patent,

in 2019, samsung and huawei jointly requested the court to suspend their intellectual property disputes on february 25th. the two parties reached a framework patent license agreement, which finally reached a global settlement on may 14th.

standards-essential patents

 

 

whether apple, qualcomm, huawei or samsung, they are all negotiating: the share of standard- essential patent rights in the industry.

sep: a patent that claims an invention that must be used to comply with a technical standard. for example, the 5gpp standard in the field of communications, the wireless communication technology standard developed by the china communications standards association (ccsa), and the blu-ray technology standard.

patent technology holders can enjoy and control patents on their own, or they can waive exclusive proprietary technology and charge other users a reasonable royalty to allow them to use.

03
cross-licensing patent

 

 take the mobile phone industry as an example. each company has its own patented technology. if the enterprises have their own control, the whole industry will have no technical exchanges. the same products may have different production standards, and the whole industry is in a chaotic state.

omg! samsung&huawei unexpectedly agree to settle patents dispute

 

in order to fully implement their own technology and achieve maximum economic benefits, many companies will reach a “patent license agreement“, just like the cooperation between apple and qualcomm, and the settlement of huawei and samsung.

omg! samsung&huawei unexpectedly agree to settle patents dispute

 

patent license agreement: a contract between the patent owner (licensor) and a licensee that defines the terms under which the licensee may make, sell, and use a patented invention. the agreement also provides how royalties will be paid to the patent owner.

achieving an agreement means that the two parties reach a patent share, including patent right, that is, cross-licensing patent.

china to strengthen credit checks of individuals/businesses

china will strengthen the credit checks of individuals and businesses and cut their evidentiary burden when applying for government approval or registration.

1

poor credit record or false promises

under a pilot program initiated by the ministry of justice, the applicants will only need to promise that they meet the government requirements and be willing to bear legal liability for false information, instead of presenting related certificates or proof as required previously.

the administrative organs will directly handle the applications and examine their credentials in their database later, according to a plan for the pilot issued by the ministry.

 

applicants who have poor credit records or make false promises may still need to submit the documents required for their applications, according to a ministry official.

administrative organs will need to carefully check if the applicants keep their promises, according to the official, who added that those making false promises would be blacklisted.

what happens if you are blacklisted?

 

as the new social credit system does not fully exist yet, it is difficult to assess the full impact on chinese citizens and companies.

however, it would be instructive to look at the various private and government systems currently in place.

the 2018 annual report released by the national public credit information centre (npcc) stated that over 3.59 million chinese enterprises have been added to the official creditworthiness blacklist. 

for example, a health care product maker, which was accused of making false marketing claims about the benefits of a product that a young cancer patient took, was added to the creditworthiness blacklist. a chinese vaccine manufacturer was fined $1.3 billion and was added to the creditworthiness blacklist.

being on the blacklist means that

 

companies can lose out on government contracts and bank loans, and be restricted from importing or exporting goods.

individuals could be banned from a wide range of activities, including travel restrictions. employees may also be prevented from representing companies or taking senior management roles.

what companies should look out for?

 

a key employee whose role involves substantive domestic and international travel gets blacklisted.

the blacklisted person may not be allowed to travel via air or high-speed train, and may not be able to act on behalf of the company in discussions with government departments such as china customs or the state administration of taxation. the employee may be unaware of the blacklisting until booking a flight or making a customs import declaration.

a manufacturing company in china is either outsourcing some of its manufacturing to a third-party, or sourcing parts and components from a local third-party supplier. the third-party gets blacklisted and is no longer able to complete its obligation to supply the manufacturing company.

if this third-party is a key component supplier and is supplying on a just-in-time basis, the manufacturing company may have to close its production line until it finds another supplier or it tries to help the third-party clear itself off the blacklist through the payment of fines or unpaid bills. 


if the above scenarios occur, the damage to an unprepared company may be substantive. companies may take the following actions to mitigate such risks:

 

contractual agreements with third-parties and employment contracts should contain provisions dealing with situations of blacklisting.

 

due diligence on a new employee or new third-party service provider should include reviews of the government blacklist(s), if available.

 

ensure that there is a suitably qualified and approved person who can immediately assume the duties of the blacklisted person. consider appointing more than one third-party supplier of key components so if one is blacklisted, the other(s) can immediately take over.
