Most Americans would be up-in-arms if the government tried to control how they use the internet. We all generally have the right to say whatever we want to say online (our freedom of speech permits that.) Some governments are fed up with the anonymous attacks and posts that attack government officials and spread gossip through online forums. China recently passed a law requiring all internet users to register with their real names. People are calling this an attack on free speech since the government is most likely interested in figuring out who is talking badly about them. What this new law does, in the greater scheme of things, is hold people accountable for what they do and say online.
