On Tuesday, the Senate Commission on Law and the Constitution will vote on Proposed Law No. 89/00, which will require Internet users to register before undertaking any activity online that requires interactivity, such as accessing e-mail or creating a blog. According to the bill's sponsor, Eduardo Azeredo (PSDB-MG) [a federal police report on the former governor and PSDB president's fundraising activities from 1998-2002 is due out this week as well — Ed.], Internet users who do not identify themselves will be subject to criminal penalties.
But the current congress is a lame duck legislature, note.
