Bloggers to get registered (2)

On the proposal to get bloggers in the country to register with the authorities, the Prime Minister said this needed careful study to ensure such a ruling could be implemented. He said the registration of bloggers was not a policy at the moment.

Deputy Energy, Water and Communications Minister Datuk Shaziman Abu Mansor recently said in Parliament that bloggers using locally hosted websites might be asked to register as one way to prevent the spread of negative or malicious content on the Internet.

Abdullah also said that he was aware that many people were unhappy with the activities of bloggers who spread “fairy tales”. On whether there would be a new law to govern bloggers, he said that there were already laws in existence to deal with the spread of false information.

Well, I guess this would not affect us at the moment so long we don't post anything sensitive in our blog? But if registration of blog become mandatory, then it'll be another story la..... hope it doesn't happen.
