Regulators should focus on banning the commercial spread of US dramas online, says an article in Oriental Morning Post. Following is an excerpt:

The serial dramas from the US mostly haven't got the permission of their copyright owners and have been illegally uploaded into cyberspace by fans in China with homemade Chinese subtitles.
