The Chinese government is concerned about people singing risqu? songs in karaoke bars. So it is rolling out a program in test cities in which karaoke bars can choose songs from a central database. The approved songs will exclude those with sexual content, political themes and foreign slang. If it works the way officials want, it could expand to the rest of the nation. The database will also help protect the intellectual property of recording artists, according to the government.
