Beijing--Chinaâs State Press and Publication Administration said Friday that the Chinese-language versions of Newsweek, Forbes
and Harvard Business Review
could be banned from the Peopleâs Republic of China âfor illegal entry,â according to the China Daily Web site. Foreign publications must acquire permission from the SPPA before publishing in China, and many U.S. publishers receive approval by entering into joint ventures with Chinese businesses. âAccording to publishing regulations, violators in transgression of the law could face fines, have publications and related facilities confiscated, or even face criminal penalties for operating an illegal business,â China Daily reported.
