* No move to ban porn websites in Sri Lanka - report
Sun, Dec 30, 2012, 10:27 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 30, Colombo: The Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) of Sri Lanka has said that there was no move to ban access to porn websites in the country, a media report said.

A weekly English newspaper quoting TRC Director General Anusha Pelpita has said that either a court order or a request from the National Child Protection Authority (NCPA) was needed to impose a ban on access to porn websites.

He has explained that there were over one million porn websites and although access to some has been banned in the country they are still accessible through proxy websites.

According to Pelpita, there are several software packages, which could be used to restrict access to porn websites.

Google Trends, a public web facility that shows how often a particular search-term is entered relative to the total search-volume across various regions of the world, and in various languages, listed Sri Lanka at the top of the list for searching the word 'sex' on Google.
