ABSTRACT
The article presents information on how Chinese authorities use porn as a pretext for tightening controls over web content and Internet censorship. Most of online pornographic content in the country is imported from the U.S. and Japan. In a recent report, American web servers are accused of providing access to porn content in China. However, China also has a homegrown Internet porn industry. Live video chat is the most profitable domestically produced stock-in-trade.
