Chinese Government to Crack Down on Mobile Content

Chinanews.com.cn, 2/04/09

A posting on the website for the Ministry of Public Security states that the Ministry of Public Security, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), the Ministry of Culture, the State Administration for Industry and Commerce (SAIC), and the General Administration of Press and Publication (GAPP) recently issued a joint notification stating that through mid-April, the ministries will join forces on a dedicated project aimed at ending the use of mobile phones to disseminate pornographic and other illegal content nationwide. The use of mobile phones and mobile gaming equipment, and especially the downloading of pornographic and illegal content to mobile phones and MP3 or PMP storage cards, will be a major focus. The crack down will focus on mobile phone retailers and second-hand retailers who sell mobile devices and offer video and music downloading services.
