Chinese web pornographer jailed for life

Sun sets on 'Pornographic Summer'

The essential guide to IT transformation

A Chinese web pornographer who founded the country's "largest pornography website" has been sentenced to life imprisonment, Reuters reports.

The Taiyuan Intermediate People's Court jailed 28-year-old Chen Hui for his part in establishing "Pornographic Summer" and three other unnamed sites.

Established in 2004, Pornographic Summer charged its estimated 600,000 users between £13 and £17, although police said it was "difficult to know how much money Chen made from the sites, since most of it was spent or squirreled away in foreign bank accounts".

Eight other organisers of Chen sites were jailed for between 13 months to 10 years. The court also "ordered the confiscation of 100,000 yuan" (£6,600 pounds), according to Xinhua news agency.

Chen evaded the authorities by regularly changing domain name and server, Xinua added. ®
