Italy May Tax Hard-Working, Salt-of-the-Earth Bloggers!

Keep_on_blogging.jpg

BoingBoing via Beppe Grillo reports that Italian politician Ricardo Franco Levi has proposed a law that requires anyone with a blog or website to register with the government and produce certificates or pay a tax.

This holds even if the publisher has no intention of making money with the site.

The draft was approved by the Council of Ministers on October 12th.

Bastardos!

Grillo vows, "My blog won't close. If I have to, I'll transfer lock stock, barrel and server to a democratic State." There's the hot-bloodedness we know and love.

In a thoughtful post-script, he provides Levi's email address to "anyone wishing to express their opinion" about the draft law.
