Two livestreaming sessions were recently held by the Beijing Internet Court (BIC), People's Court Daily, and China Global Television Network (CGTN), to help the public better understand the Personal Information Protection Law, which officially took effect on Nov 1, 2021.

The two livestreaming sessions invited two BIC judges to interpret the law, attracting a total viewership of 370,000.
