China has moved to restrict videos online, allowing only state-controlled sites to post any including those shared by users and requiring Internet providers to delete and report a variety of content.

Video that involves national secrets, hurts the reputation of China, disrupts social stability or promotes pornography will be banned. Providers must delete and report such content.

"Those who provide Internet video services should insist on serving the people, serve socialism ... and abide by the moral code of socialism," the rules say.

Noticeably missing from the list of banned content is pirated video.
