Search engines urged to reject pornography

Xinhua published “Search engines urged to reject pornography” today: “China released a self-discipline pact for Chinese search engine providers to reject web porn Wednesday.

The new regulation, promulgated by the Internet Society of China (ISC), an industry group run by the Ministry of Information Industry, bars search engines from collecting, disseminating or linking to any websites with pornographic, illegal or inappropriate content.

Search engines must not provide services or set up any contacts with any of these illegal websites.”
