New photocopy rules will impact Tibetan culture

Oct. 31 (Angry Chinese Blogger): In May 2010, Beijing introduced new regulations in Tibet, prohibiting the anonymous printing or copying of documents in Lhasa. Reports indicate that the regulations are almost exclusively being used to prohibit or discourage the printing of Tibetan language material.

The measure would impact schools wishing to provide supplementary  educational material to their students in the Tibetan language, and monasteries wishing to provide local people with an unabridged version of their traditional teaching by producing documents containing details that have been excised from the Han approved version of Tibetan Buddhist teachings.
