Abstract: Since its first internet-connected commercial computer network was established in 1995, China has witnessed explosive internet development and growth. By the end of 2008, the total number of internet users reached 298 million (covering 22.6% of China’s total population), and China surpassed the US as the largest internet user of the world. While China enjoyed tremendous economic benefits from internet use and development, the Chinese government has tried to maintain tight control over the telecommunication industry as well as the public’s internet use. In this article, we first review historical development of internet use in China, and then focus on regulatory agencies, relevant laws, and governmental regulations and policies with regard to internet use. Next, we discuss newly emerged cyber crimes and criminal behaviors in China, study their impact on China’s internet use and development, and examine how the Chinese government reacts to these crimes. Lessons from internet use and regulation in China are drawn at last based on China’s economic, political, and legal conditions.
