Tibet: Photocopying to require ID registration
19 May 10

Anyone wishing to reproduce printed or written material in Lhasa will have to undergo real-name ID registration due to a new ruling announced on 10 May.  Local police will now regularly check copy service providers to ensure that they take down the names, addresses and organisations of all their customers. The move is intended to monitor the distribution of leaflets and pamphlets by pro-Tibetan activists.
