Update to China’s Mapping Laws Would Increase Fines for Not Including All of the Country

The key issue seems to be maps that do not show all of China's land claims.

Current regulations, drafted in 1995, allow for a maximum fine of 10,000 yuan, which would increase to 100,000 yuan ($16,000) if the new law is passed, according to the Xinhua news agency.

The draft also proposed greater supervision of Internet map services, requiring providers to place data servers within China's territory and use only approved maps.
