Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Japan has banned child pornography. It is now illegal to produce, distribute, sell, possess or trade in child porn. As reported by The Register last month, the bill was widely supported and not expected to meet much opposition.

It's hoped the move - which applies to all aspects of the "Lolita trade" in Japan and not just the Internet - will stem the flow of porn onto the net. Anyone found breaking this new law will face up to three years in jail or fine of up $25,000, Newsbytes reports. A study by the United Nations claimed 80 per-cent of all child pornography on the Net originates from Japan. ®
