Sina Corp. (NASDAQ:SINA): Maxim views Beijing city government’s March 16 deadline for Weibo’s real name registration as a potentially significant negative for SINA as it sees no assurance to how many existing users are willing to comply due to jeopardizing their identity to both government surveillance and criminal attempt.
