China gets tough on mobile porn

China is to introduce tough measures that include imprisonment and fines for people who send pornography over their mobiles.

According to the official Xinhua News Agency, people caught sending pornographic video, photos or messages over their handsets could results in a two week term behind bars or a fine of 3,000 yuan (£203).

The move follows the arrest of 19 mobile phone dealers in China who were found distributing porn saved onto memory cards in handsets.

China has strict laws on the dissemination of sexually explicit material with jail terms of up to 15 years for offenders. This is the first law of its type to be passed that specifically targets mobile phones, Xinhua said.
