BEIJING, July 13 (Xinhua) -- China's anti-pornography and illegal-publications office handled over 140,000 tip-offs from the public in the first half of 2020, 11 percent higher than the same period of last year.

Among the cases, about 128,000 were involved with obscene and pornographic content, with 5,502 tip-offs on illegal publications, 4,819 on copyright infringement, and 1,274 on fake media and fake journalists, according to the National Office Against Pornography and Illegal Publications.
