China is cracking down on erotic text messages being sent via the mobile phone network. Three erotic text messages will land you in jail for 10 (ten) days while more messages will result in more jail time and a fine.
Mobile phone users in central China could face jail for sending unwanted erotic text messages while in the north, one local Communist Party branch has held 480 meetings on the problem in the past month.
Henan province has announced that firing off just one such message could see the sender slapped in detention for up to five days, the China Daily reported on Tuesday.
Three messages could result in 10 days behind bars and a fine of 500 yuan (73 dollars), the English-language newspaper reported.
The province's legal office announced the new penalties to address the growing problem of unwanted and inappropriate text messages in a country with more than 600 million mobile phone users, it said.
I guess their mobile network are heavily monitored just like their internet access. I wonder if they will find a way round to this?
