5400 people were caught for online porn in 2009 China

Nearly 5,400 suspects was caught last year in a crackdown on online pornography by Chinese authorities.

According to a statement by the Ministry of Public Security, the “purification of the Internet” and fighting of online crime is closely tied to the country’s stability. Beijing’s pervasive policing of cyberspace and attempts to block the Internet are already among the world’s most stringent.
“Lewd and pornographic content seriously pollutes the online environment, depraves social morals and poisons the physical and psychological health of the masses of young people,” the statement said. “It must be firmly controlled.”
The ministry said nearly 9,000 pornographic Web sites have been deleted from the Internet and 5,394 suspects captured in 2009, although it did not say how many of them were formally arrested or charged.
The communist government says the main targets of its Web censorship are pornography, gambling and other sites deemed harmful to society. Critics, however, say that often acts as cover for detecting and blocking sensitive political content. Its restrictions of the Internet are often referred to as the “Great Firewall of China.”
It said future efforts would focus on China-based operators of overseas-registered Web sites and companies that provide Internet services, or register domain names or rent virtual space to sites with pornographic content. However, many foreign sites have been blocked by China’s Internet authorities, including YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and a host of other media and news Web sites.
