China to Crack Down on Search Engines

Bloomberg is reporting that China plans to crack down on search engines, among other sites they deem harmful. This certainly wouldn't be the first time.

The reason this time is concerns over pornography. Of course, search engines don't host pornography on their sites, they simply provide links to searchers. If China feels it has a pornography problem, the origination of that problem begins with the searcher, not the engine.

Web sites and search engines that ignore their new found regulations will face penalties and possible closure.
