Highly interesting decision which addressed several issues from the Maori view of data:
1. Data can't be ‘anonymised’ in a Māori sense unless a ‘tapu removal ceremony’ is performed.
2. "Māori data is not owned by any one individual, but is owned collectively by one or more family units, clan or tribes. ...
In some contexts, collective Māori rights will prevail over those of individuals."
3. Māori data sovereignty requires the local storage of data.

New crackdown on online streamers?
CCTV News reported today two cases of tax evasion by two Chinese online streamers, who were respectively fined 65 & 27 mil RMB.

The cases are interesting for 3 reasons:
1. They were caught by the tax authorities using "tax big data analysis" by the Hangzhou tax bureau. I guess that's one reason why big data is getting so important in China.
2. Their alleged wrongdoings were converting what they earned in the streaming business from personal income to the business income of the sole proprietorship. I'm not a tax expert, but if I remember correctly this is a widespread practice among China's celebrities and

Chinese Ambassador Qin Gang to the US gave a speech at the Dialogue with the Brookings Institution Board of Trustees earlier this week. Here are a few interesting passages:
1. "The US says that its China policy is for defending the “rules-based international order” and ensuring the implementation of “rules of the road”. But what are the rules? Who made these rules? Who are the traffic police? The US has not made itself clear on these questions."
These questions pretty much summed up China's problems with the so-called “rules-based international order”, which I've been tweeting on since March.

The CAC just issued its draft Cyber Data Security Administrative Rules for comments. Several interesting points:
1. it confirms my warning 2 weeks ago that even foreign firms like @google, @Meta
& @Twitter are required to comply with the new law even if they are not operating in China, and further expands the list of covered activities under Art. 3 of PIPL by adding
another category: involving important domestic data processing. If all these giant digital firms have not designated a China-compliance officer (even though they have no operation in China), they should do it now.

China's WTO Ambassador Li Chenggang spoke at a conference on China's 20 years in the WTO last week, where he made some interesting remarks on China's views on various WTO issues.

1. WTO reform in general:
China should consider the issue in a broader context rather than just the Sino-US trade war.
2. DSM, which was a key issue in his discussion with @AmbassadorTai, where he calls for new thinking "not only in the framework of Sino-US game, but from perspective of multilateral trading system, & perspective of a membership structure with increasingly divergent interests."
