Kentucky to Ban Online Anonymity?
One of the (pseudonymous) bloggers at The Web Difference (a class blog at Harvard Law) notes:
A new bill in the Kentucky state legislature would ban anonymous speech in web forums, ostensibly in response to online harassment and “cyberbullying.” The bill would require forum posters to register their real name, address and e-mail with the forum. All forum posts would include the poster’s full name. Under the bill, any forum operator who allowed users to post anonymously would face liability.
