China Mulls Banning Online Gaming for Minors Between Midnight, 8 a.m.
(Beijing) — Parents of gaming-addicted adolescents soon should be assured that their children will not be playing compulsively into the wee hours of the night until daybreak, as a new draft law will impose a curfew on online gaming for minors.
In a drive to curb what it calls “excessive gaming,” China’s Cyberspace Administration has published online protection guidelines for minors, stipulating that gaming companies adopt a real-name registration system. This will allow systems to identify adolescents and disable their accounts from midnight to 8 a.m.
