Submitted by

Hecatombles writes "The Italian parliamen passes a proposal that, if approved, will require a registration to the ROC (Register of Communication Operators) of all the sites which provide "editorial content" to the pubblic. The vague definition of "editorial content" means that all BLOGS, INFORMATION SITES, TECHNICAL SITES, will require: the registration, a "Responsible Journalist", the payment of a registration TAX and complicate bureaucratic procedure. This proposal will shift the crime of "defamation" to a new level "defamation by means of printed paper" with much higher consequences. If the proposal will became law, 99% of internet sites will require to be registered. This will mean the end of free speech and Internet in Italy.
