Crackdown on foreign music: Ministry of Culture

China is planning to culturally sensor online music, with
contents to be vetted by the Ministry of Culture. Looks
like political and porn content are likely to be filtered.
The MoC explicitly stated music content provided by
Baidu is in accord with the directive.

Pali research, meanwhile, says Baidu is going to be
affected by the action since, per them, 80% of Baidu's
traffic is from MP3 search.
