I voted no, but with some reservations.|
The reasonI'm opposed to it is because it could harm Chinese animation in the long term. After all, if China should do this now, other nations will remember should China's animation improve in future, and they will then surely reciprocate. Should China protest, they'll simply point to China's own palicies, making it look like the pot calling the kettle black.
I think a better solution would be for China to improve the quality of education in the field of animation. That way, the resultant increase in the quality of Chinse animaioin will eliminate the need for controls in the first place (after all, if controls are needed, what does that say of the current quality of Chinese animation?). In addition, such an increase in the quality of Chinese animation could lead to the future development of a new cultural export, which could mean big money for China later on.
Should China choose to go the way of protectionism instead, then there will be no need to improve the quality of education in the field, resulting in a contirued poor quality, thus blocking any potential future exports, not to mention counter-restrictions from other countries as retaliation against the Chinese policy.
