I jsut got back from Hong Kong, and was actually working on an article for K5 describing the tech culture there. I heard a little bit of buzz about this as my trip was coming to a close, which I found interesting due to the fact that in Hong Kong, you can literally find pornography everywhere. There are no social stigmas against pornography; pornographic movies are mixed in with regular movies, and nobody even gave a crap about my younger brother browsing or buying pornography (and he doesn't look 18, the legal age for buying porn there, though being Americans maybe the clerks didn't know any better). This sonuds like the Chinese government making an extra-big stink about soemthing which the residents of Hong Kong won't actually uphold even if it does come to pass as a law (in fact, this sounds like the calm before the storm of China trying to convert Hong Kong over to their government over the next 50 years).
I have a feeling that if the Chinese government tries to get their way, Hong Kong will revolt and become a fully-sovereign nation. They're doing just fine with China's current hands-off methodology (in fact, the Hong Kong government is one of the least-corrupt in the world), and the populace doesn't strike me as standing for what amount to drastic changes in social mores and oppression.
