Italy at a Turning Point for Internet Freedom

The Italian Institute for Policy Innovation launched a petition to ask the Italian senators to prevent the approval of the  new obligation provision equating bloggers to journalists.

The bill 1415A, already discussed and approved by the Chamber of Deputies, if approved also by the Italian Senate would require Italian bloggers to rectify eventual mistakes within 48 hours (fines goes up to 12,500 euros).

Sign the petition and spread the word.
