The government is kindly requesting all ‘newscasting’ websites to register. Since it’s a request and not an order, I’m going to go ahead and ignore that for now. The application form is online, but you have to dig for it. There’s no actual link in the announcement.
What they’re asking for is the name of website, admins, editors, journalists and associated IP addresses. This is somewhat odd because a lot of this info you can get from a WHOIS and IP addresses (for users at least) are often shared and constantly changing.
Legally I’m not sure how they can demand a registration, and it seems that they are not, in fact, demanding. I know people that are registering because they have companies and want to cover their ass, but unless this dog has teeth, I’ll assume it doesn’t hunt.
