Source: GAPP, MoC Prep NetEase Sanctions for WoW Ops
An unnamed insider said China's General Administration of Press and Publications (GAPP) and the Ministry of Culture (MoC) have reached consensus over whether NetEase (Nasdaq:NTES) is operating licensed 3D MMORPG World of Warcraft (WoW) in contravention of regulations, and plan to announce punishment in mid-January, Sohu reported December 31.
Reports in September noted NetEase had resumed commercial operations of WoW without GAPP's knowledge. GAPP later called for NetEase to halt the "illegal" charging and account registrations for the game.
