This banning policy only applies in the mainland. UsefulNotes/HongKong and Macau are Special Administrative Regions of the People's Republic, and they aren't governed by this scheme; they have their own, independent rating systems. This is how some works can be shown in Hong Kong but not in the mainland.

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'' was once banned in China for its themes of rebellion and the dignity of oppressed minorities. The second season also portrays China as a nation of starving citizens oppressed by a group of power-hungry creeps using the twelve-year-old heir to the throne as their [[PuppetKing puppet]] before a bunch of Japanese guys lead by a [[MightyWhitey white guy]] incite a revolution and overthrow them, which doesn't help matters. It was un-banned in 2008.

** Allegedly, the real reason it got banned was because of the nudity.

The government accomplishes this with a strict pass-fail rating system; either the film is appropriate for all ages, or it's rejected. As with most other countries, the censor board's failure to rate a film equals a ban. The criteria for passing are often arbitrary, vague, or otherwise secret, so it's not easy to determine in advance what will pass muster, and fosters an industry of self-censorship. Some individual theater managers will have unofficial ratings for films which otherwise pass, but these are relatively rare and separate from the government sanction.

* {{Wikipedia}} [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blocking_of_Wikipedia_in_mainland_China alternates]] between full ban and ban of topics such as Taiwan and the Tiananmen Square Massacre. It's been more or less un-banned in English since 2013, but Chinese-language Wikipedias are completely blocked outside of some universities, which charge students for access.
