The government agencies responsible for regulating online gaming in China have passed new regulations that could allow Chinese gaming companies to functionally block the distribution of foreign MMOs within the country.
The new regulations give China's General Administration of Press and Publication (the group responsible for the rating and censorship of games, television, books, etc.) the ability to indefinitely postpone their evaluation (and thus, the public release) of a game if that game's creators or publisher is currently being "sued or targeted for arbitration" by a Chinese game company. Until the suit or complaint is resolved, the GAPP has the option to eternally delay any title's release.
