China to allow legal gambling on horses for first time since 1949. Times

China confiscates 149 mln publications in 2007. Guardian, UK
Chinese authorities confiscated nearly 149 million magazines, video disks and other publications in 2007 for being pornographic, pirated or otherwise unauthorised, the official Xinhua news agency said on Monday.
China keeps a tight rein on broadcasting, publishing and news media, but that has not prevented the growth of a thriving black market for all sorts of publications, including pirated books, DVDs and software.
About 136 million of the confiscated items were pirated, while close to 4 million were pornographic and nearly 3.4 million were smuggled, Xinhua reported, citing the National Office for Cleaning Up Pornography and Fighting Illegal Publications.
It said that a recent campaign to fight "harmful" information online had led to the closure of 44,000 China-based pornographic Web sites and 14,000 such sites run by people outside China.
Beijing has been tightening its grip over what it considers "vulgar" entertainment.
Last week it ordered music and video producers to scour their inventories for risque materials and placed restrictions on Internet sites that allow users to upload video or audio. (Reporting by Jason Subler; editing by Roger Crabb)

  The Rolling Stones to make China debut in April Xinhua News, Mar. 16, 2006 - The Rolling Stones will make their first ever visit to China to perform in Shanghai on April 8. The rock greats will play at Shanghai Grand Stage, which has more than 8,500 seats. The Shanghai performance is produced by WPC Piecemeal Inc., Concert Productions International and The Next Adventure, promoted locally by Emma Entertainment and sponsored by Deutsche Bank. Jonathan Krane, CEO of Emma Entertainment, says that the Shanghai concert is part of the Rolling Stones' "bigger bang" world tour. The tour opened in Boston in August 2005 and has already attracted more than 1.5 million fans in the United States. The Rolling Stones are among the better known Western rock acts in China. "It's better late than never", says Li Yi, a 30-year-old Shanghai local. "Many young Chinese love to listen to a lot of Rock and Roll music, which has been synonymous with a rebellious attitude."  Ticket prices of the Rolling Stone's Shanghai concert range from 300 yuan (37.5 U.S. dollars) to 3,000 yuan (375 U.S. dollars).
