Russia forces its bloggers to register on a government list

The Russian lower house has given its final approval to start regulating the blogosphere in the country, marking the first time that the term ‘internet user called blogger’ has been introduced into its legislation.

With this law, everyone who has a blog in the country must declare their last name, initials and email address to become part of a government registry. And that’s as long as you don’t have more than 3,000 visitors a day, of course. If this figure is exceeded (with a blog or social network page), the blogger must also put their information on another special list and abide by a series of restrictions, which, if not complied with, will lead to the imposition of fines and the temporary suspension of the blog.
