E­Porn Crack­down

Beijing Review - - This Week -

Three well-known por­tals, in­clud­ing NetEase and Phoenix, have been pun­ished for dis­play­ing porno­graphic con­tent.

The pun­ish­ment in­cluded fines and sus­pen­sion of the chan­nels, the Na­tional Of­fice Against Porno­graphic and Il­le­gal Pub­li­ca­tions said in a state­ment on Au­gust 17.

The crack­down, run­ning from Au­gust to the end of Septem­ber, aims to clean up harm­ful in­for­ma­tion on­line, tar­get­ing Weibo, WeChat, search en­gines, mo­bile apps and web­sites that cir­cu­late porno­graphic con­tent.

On­line ad­ver­tise­ments and games that con­tain ob­jec­tion­able con­tent will also be pun­ished.

The na­tion­wide cam­paign was launched by the anti-pornog­ra­phy of­fice in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the de­part­ments of pub­lic se­cu­rity, cul­ture, and cy­berspace ad­min­is­tra­tion.
