China Requires Blog and Site Registration

The freedom of the web is limited by the country it is connected to these days.

As the article from Reporters Without Borders tells us China now requires every blogger and webmaster to register their online presence.

China appears to be leading the way in Internet despotism. Though the Chinese government is suggesting 75% jumped to and registered, I find that hard to believe. It is more likely the governemnt has a much lower number for Chinese based websites.

The funny thinng about this annoucement is that it comes at a time when big internet businesses are pushing into the Chinese market. Hopefully capitalism will help erode confidence in the Communist regime and eventually things will change.
