|[Nettime-bold] attention please|
in case you already know the content of the folowing message, you already did something ..i guess! vzankov The french national assembly has voted a law to ban anonymous web hosting. Any user should declare it's identity to the hosting service, with a six month jail penalty if they provide false information. The hosting service shall give the id's to the court, otherwise it's owners faces a six month jail penalty. This vote was the last one before the definitive one that will make the law applicable in less than a month. It comes after a vote from the senate (the upper chamber) saying the hosting server had to give the id's to any interested party asking for it. I know it seems too 1984 to be true from other places in the world, thought some contries do understand us very very well (australia, singapour, china, ...).
