If it Goes Through, That Will Scupper the Pro-Collecting Trouble-makers

'Websites to be forced to identify trolls under new measures', Websites will soon be forced to identify people who have posted defamatory messages online. New UK government proposals say victims have a right to know who is behind malicious messages without the need for costly legal battles. The powers will be balanced by measures to prevent false claims in order to get material removed. This deals with an awkward discrepancy between UK and US legislation, and will help protect free speech. It will also allow Steve Taylor to find out who really was behind a certain blog written by his enemies in the UK.
