China cracks down on college campus porn sites

A Chinese campaign to clean up online pornography has reached college campuses with the Education Ministry lashing out at some school Web sites for making money from porn. "We strongly condemn Web site hosts for making 'unlawful' money by distributing pornographic information. Students are easily influenced and perverted by such information as they are still in their formative years and do not have a solid hold on their values," said Vice-Minister of Education Li Weihong. By mid-May, Chinese police had cracked 244 cases and detained 270 suspects involved in online pornography. The Ministry of Public Security and nine other government departments launched a six-month campaign in April to crack down on illegal online activities such as distributing pornographic materials and organizing cyber strip shows.

Gonna be very interesting watching China They're walking a thin line between Communism and Capitalism...somethings gotta give. Give humans a taste of economic freedom you arent gonna be able to stop that snowball.

Do they know that what they're doing is like the US with Prohibition back in the 20's? They wont be able to completely wipe out porn, even though they're a dictatorship.
