By Matt Smith DUBAI (Reuters) – Saudi Arabia plans to regulate local companies that screen shows on YouTube, a senior official was quoted as saying in local media on Tuesday – a move that could stifle its nascent creative industries.

But YouTubes popularity has now brought Saudi Arabias homegrown production houses under the gaze of the General Authority for Audiovisual Media, a recently formed watchdog. Riyadh Najm, the Authoritys president, told the pan-Arab newspaper Asharq al-Awsat that his organization would soon issue a manifesto to organize – or regulate – the work of YouTube channels.
