Saudi Arabia, the world’s top per capita user of YouTube, plans to regulate local companies that screen shows on Google Inc.’s online video-sharing website, a move that could stifle its nascent creative industries, Reuters has reported. Riyadh Najm, the president of the kingdom’s recently-formed General Authority for Audiovisual Media said the organisation would soon issue a manifesto to organise, or regulate, the work of YouTube channels. This will include rules and conditions that would be “in accordance with the nature of society and laws in this context,” Najm said. “We are working on embracing these talents and developing their artistic and technical abilities.” Licensing would help guarantee quality, he said.
