Shanghai Bans Sex-related Internet Ads

Beijing Morning Post, 2/05/08

Shanghai's industrial and commercial authorities have issued a note on approval of advertising, stating that companies and individuals may not use the Internet to publish adverts which are sexually suggestive, promote treatments for sexual diseases or 'involve sex'. Sites publishing adverts for drugs and medical services must also abide by the relevant regulations.

Types of sexual advertising now banned include the use of paid text links on content or search pages; product introductions; and the use of blogs, forums and email.
