ShortTake: China regulates virus research

The Chinese government said it will implement new rules that will put the nation's police force in charge of all computer virus research. Businesses that want to study viruses or develop antivirus software, must register with the Ministry of Public Security, according to Xinhua News Agency. The announcement comes two months after rules were implemented to prohibit the use of the Internet to spread politically subversive or pornographic material.
