Considering that a large number of practitioners have taken Shen Yun DVDs and other video files outside of China – DVDs and video files that were authorized and specially made for people in mainland China where the live performances cannot be seen; and

Considering that inside China many practitioners have casually circulated Shen Yun DVDs based on their own understandings and personal preferences; and

Considering that these people's behavior, acting on their own will, has interfered with the efforts and goals of Shen Yun Performing Arts;

Shen Yun Performing Arts hereby announces its decision to stop providing videos of performances to mainland China.
