China shuts down “real time” porn site

Chinese police have shut down a Web site selling real-time porn and arrested 33 people, state media said on Wednesday, part of a campaign which led to the shut-down of 44,000 Web sites and arrest of 868 people last year.

China launched a crackdown on online pornography and “unhealthy” Web content after Chinese President Hu Jintao said the country’s sprawling Internet posed a threat to social stability.

The live site, whose server was based in Taiwan, charged viewers to watch strip shows or other pornographic performances that were staged in China, Xinhua news agency said.

“This operation started up in the second half of 2006 and took in more than 1 million yuan ($137,000) in just three months,” it said. (story)
