China announces reward to report internet pornography
The Chinese authorities in its latest campaign to weed out porn websites, announced reward scheme for the public to encourage them to report such porn websites to the authorities. The campaign appears to have encouraged internet users to search for pornography resulting into flood of onlineTip-offs on Internet and mobile WAP sites containing pornographic contents from the internet users to authorities. The authorities have announced to give each qualified informer with up to 10,000 yuan (1,465 U.S. dollars) in reward.

Since the announcement, the China Internet Illegal Information Reporting Center had received more than 13,000 online tip-offs and more than 500 phone calls, 10 times the usual daily number. The center, together with ministries and the National Office against Pornographic and Illegal Publication, issued a circular encouraging the public to report on websites and mobile WAPsites that contain obscene information or put on illegal advertisements of sex products. China has launched several rounds of crackdowns on online pornography. In mid-November, the crackdown was extended to WAP sites that can be accessed by mobile handsets.

The regulators in China have shut down hundreds of video-sharing websites in a bid to control content more closely. Several well-known websites were ordered to delete links to downloaded films or television series in the past week. One site, BTChina, said on its website that the State Administration of Video, Film and Television had commanded it to close because it had no license to provide audio or video content. About 414 video-sharing websites had been shut so far this year. Facebook, YouTube and Twitter are also all banned. 

The Indian Government should take similar stern steps to check the growth of freely available online pornographic content which is polluting the young minds.  So far, the authorities in India have banned popular porn site is an adult cartoon strip featuring a married Indian woman’s sexual adventures. The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, Government of India had asked all Internet Service Providers to block the said website. The Controller of Certifying Authorities (CCA), a government agency under the Department of Information Technology, is the agency that is entrusted under the IT Act to block websites. It would be pertinent to mention here that Section 69 A of the IT Act, 2000 empowers the Central Government to block any pornographic website.
