US demands answers on China Internet rules [google.com]
The United States called on China to explain why it appeared to be blocking websites of US firms, as Washington took the first steps to bring the case to the World Trade Organization.
"US businesses... have expressed concerns regarding the adverse business impacts from periodic disruptions to the availability of their websites in China," the US Trade Representative said in a statement on Wednesday.
The request was made under world trade rules which require members to provide information about potential barriers to trade.
The nearly 50-question filing asks who is responsible for blocking websites, why and when it takes place.
