Putuo procuratorate highlights risks for Internet firms

November 01, 2019 |

A press conference was held by the Putuo District Procuratorate on Wednesday, interpreting criminal law risks for Internet companies, as part of a campaign to optimize the commercial environment in the district.

As such companies develop rapidly along with the Internet technology, more criminals have turned up. From 2015 to June this year, altogether 70 people in 44 cases have been charged and prosecuted.

Having looked into these cases, the procuratorate has zeroed in on six major risks on user information protection, intellectual property rights, Internet technology application and corporation internal management to raise awareness among business owners and boost healthy development of the companies.

Between 2018 and June 2019, the procuratorate provided 18 legal training sessions in companies and followed up 22 cases for relevant authorities as part of the campaign to improve Putuo’s business environment.
