(From Israel Matzav) A bill introduced in the Israeli Knesset would make bloggers responsible for all content on their sites, including the comments! "Web site owners or editors will be legally responsible for any content on their site, including comments made in talkbacks and message boards, a bill passed on Sunday...states. ...While the bill still needs to be approved in three readings in the Knesset plenum, receiving the support of the Ministerial Committee on Legislation gives it a much higher chance of passing into law...
Consider that two months ago an Israeli court forced Google's Blogspot ... to disclose the identity of a blogger who committed the 'crime' of 'slandering' a member of a local council....
As Israel Matzav says, "Can anyone say Chilling Effect?" All I have to say is "Mmm, mmmmm, mm, mmmmm, mmm".
