ABSTRACT
BRITISH bookworms have been giddily reading the Fifty Shades Of Grey trilogy since 2009. The Chinese, however, have so far been denied the pleasure of this saucy series due to strict censorship laws. They have taken to devouring contraband copies smuggled in from Taiwan, where it was published last year. Some 400 booksellers on Taobao, a Chinese internet shopping site similar to eBay, are stocking smuggled versions. Printers in the city of Guangzhou are also producing pirated copies to meet demand.
