A Bad Idea in Italy
BoingBoing reports that the Italian government has proposed a law that would force all bloggers in that country to register with the government and even pay taxes on their blog. You expect this sort of ridiculous assault on free expression from China, not from a western democracy like Italy. The Great Firewall is bad enough; we don't need Hadrian's Firewall to go with it.
