Chinese Regulators Cracking Down on Baidu

Chinese regulators are cracking down on Baidu. “Internet regulators opened the investigation after the death of Wei Zexi, a college student with cancer who had taken a therapy found through an online advertisement on Baidu. On Monday evening, China’s Cyberspace Administration said Baidu must change its system by the end of the month, by attaching ‘eye-catching markers,’ as well as risk warnings, to all paid results. It also said ads must comprise only 30% of results displayed on a page.”
