In conjunction with the Indonesian legal system the criminal code (KUHP) is based on Roman-Dutch law, though a draft revised criminal code (RUU KUHP) is under discussion by the People's Representative Council (DPR).Pornographic material is prohibited by law from the KUHP, the law controlling pornography concerns over the potential danger of criminal offence by pornography as well as preventing under age citizens exposed to pornography. Current laws forbid the selling and buying of pornographic materials.Any film studio found in violation may have its license revoked.As a result of this regulation and censorship, adult films and media can only be obtained through the Internet and on the black market.Nevertheless, until the early 1960s, graphic depictions of nudity and sex in Japanese film could only be seen in single-reel "stag films", made illegally by underground film producers such as those depicted in Imamura's film The Pornographers (1966).The first true pink film, and the first Japanese movie with nude scenes, was Satoru Kobayashi's controversial and popular independent production, Flesh Market (Nikutai no Ichiba, 1962), starring Tamaki Katori.Locally produced pornography initially appeared during the reign of Kim Jong-il.A typical North Korean-made pornographic film involves nude or scantily clad women dancing with music.
Due to the lack of copyright, adult content produced in Taiwan has stayed in the form of "Web Cam Chat". The Taiwanese government has planned to set up a zone for prostitution.
Pornographic websites, books, writings, films, magazines, photographs or other materials of a pornographic nature are illegal in South Korea, although the law is not regularly enforced.

Since 2009, pornographic websites have been blocked by the South Korean government.
In 2012 the Ministry of Public Administration and Security released statistics that cited 39.5% of South Korean children having experienced watching online pornography, with 14.2% of those who have viewed online pornography reportedly "wanting to imitate" it.
