NY Times app re­moved from Chi­nese iOS App Store

JUST AN­OTHER BRICK IN THE FIRE­WALL.

APC Australia - - Techbrief -

Fol­low­ing on from the story to the left, Ap­ple has re­cently re­moved the New York Times’ app from the Chi­nese ver­sion of the App Store for vi­o­lat­ing “lo­cal reg­u­la­tions” im­posed by the Chi­nese Gov­ern­ment. This is hardly news for the NY Times, as the coun­try’s gov­ern­ment has been block­ing its web­site since 2012 due to cer­tain pub­lished ar­ti­cles re­lat­ing to the then-head of state and his undis­closed wealth. Due to the fact that Ap­ple heav­ily re­lies upon China as a huge po­ten­tial mar­ket and also a man­u­fac­tur­ing lo­ca­tion, it’s un­sur­pris­ing that the com­pany is bow­ing to the Gov­ern­ment’s reg­u­la­tion of the me­dia.
