China jails porn-monger

Crackdown continues

Security for virtualized datacentres

China's aggressive crackdown on internet smut and dissent continues - yesterday a man was sentenced to 13 years prison for renting a US server for distributing pornographic material

Huang Yizhong, from Jiangmen, was fined 100,000 yuan (£9,400) and sentenced to 13 years for copying and distributing pornographic material.

He used a rented US server to download 1,000 films which he edited into clips and made available to the 4,000 members of his website.

Chinese media said he earned almost 500,000 yuan (£46,900). He ran the site from 2005 until he was caught last July.

Chinese authorities have arrested thousands of people since the crackdown was announced, and have even recruited volunteer smut-seekers to report dodgy content.

Hundreds of website have been forcibly closed and the government is restricting how individuals can register domain names.

Although widely interpreted as a way to restrict political dissent Chinese authorities have used the crackdown to restrict access to most forms of online content.®
