Oggi sciopero! (Bloggers in Italy on strike today)

Today Bloggers in Italy/Italian bloggers are protesting a law (the Alfano degree) currently making it's way through the Senate. I have no idea if this outrageous law has a chance of passing.

For more info click on this site. The English version is half way down.

Wow! Are these lawmakers kidding? Is this proposal even close to being passed? I get antsy when I read things like this, because it seems that when one governments starts on the 'Net crackdowns, others follow.

Not sure what the chances are with the law passing. In the States there has been talk of "regulating" the net as well. I hope the law doesn't pass. Freedom of speech is a basic right in a democracy/republic. People are already covered under general libel laws. There is no need for a "special" internet one.
