China Initiates Campaign Against Illegal Mobile Websites

A new campaign is underway in China to rid the country of mobile-optimized websites that spread pornography and false information.

China's Ministry of Public Security started the campaign on September 23, 2009, and the one-month campaign will target illegal mobile phone websites.

The campaign will focus on three areas: cleaning out illegal mobile phone websites, which includes closing websites that don't have a license, terminating cooperation with websites that spread harmful content, and reporting illegal websites to the police department; cracking down on the spread of pornography via mobile phone websites; and strengthening the management and supervision of access service providers, network advertisement agents and third-party payment service providers.

As the campaign has just started, the Ministry of Public Security has not released any data yet on the number of closures in which is has participated.
