According to Becca Gould, vice president of public policy at the Business Software
Alliance, "Many companies are registering publicly available information, like their
encryption algorithms, but they're not handing over their keys." Because the
regulations are somewhat vague, companies are trying to stay within the spirit, if not
the letter, of the law.
As China's ministries vie for control of the internet by issuing broad regulations,
and as the Chinese government comes to grips with a future that flies in the face of
its past, companies eager for a piece of the pie would be wise, the experts say, to
proceed with caution into Chinese cyberspace.
