Malaysia makes U-turn on licenses for social media videos

Malaysia’s government on Friday abruptly abandoned a move requiring social media users to obtain a license before posting videos. Just a day earlier, expanding a decades old-law on video production, Communications and Multimedia Minister spelt out the requirement for licenses. The move was panned by critics and opposition. The opposition called the idea ’unreasonable and backwards’.
