New York Legislation Would Ban Anonymous

New York Legislation Would Ban Anonymous Online Speech – Did you hear the one about the New York state [GOP] lawmakers who forgot about the First Amendment in the name of combating cyberbullying and „baseless political attacks?“ Proposed legislation in both chambers would require New York-based websites, such as blogs and newspapers, to „remove any comments posted on his or her website by an anonymous poster unless such anonymous poster agrees to attach his or her name to the post.“ No votes on the measures have been taken. http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2012/05/anonymous-online-speech-ban/
