The Chinese government's anti-porn campaign starting from last year end, seems to be yielding the desired results - the industry is struggling.

According to a report in the China Daily, the Supreme People's Court (SPC) has said that the Chinese Government's latest campaign against pornography on the Internet and through mobile phones has dealt a heavy blow to the industry.

Around 1,330 people received punishments for producing, duplicating, publishing, selling and spreading pornographic and vulgar information from December 2009 to October 2010, and among them five were given prison sentences of five years or more, the SPC told Xinhua.

The SPC had in February issued a judicial interpretation on crimes of spreading obscene content via Internet, mobile WAP sites or telephone information service as the country has intensified its crackdown on online porn. (ANI)
