China puts an end to anonymity on the Internet

It has been known that the Chinese regime is doing all it can to verify the information placed on the Internet. The latest development has to do with a new law, which prohibits the anonymous commenter on any individual page. Thus, those who want to make comment on a news photo, etc. will be required to use their real name.

The new rules proposed by the head of intelligence of the country and expand the already strictly regulated in China. The authorities are now seeking an effective way to implement this idea. Under this scheme, the new legislation seeks to limit the spread of malicious information. However, it is clear that this is another move that restricts freedom of expression in the most populous country in the world.

China has taken several steps to create a stranglehold around the people. The recent revision of the law on internal security provides that ISPs are required to give information directly to the police for possible violations of law, even if there are only suspicions without evidence.
