According to this San Fransisco may take steps to regulate blogging. The initiative would require local bloggers to register with the Ethics Commission and report all blogging costs that exceed $1,000. So they are making bloggers mean freelance journalists, seems kind of stupid if you ask me.
I guess the next logical question is the actual enforcement of something like this. How are they going to know if someone really is in San Fransisco? What is the fine if you do not register with the Ethics Commission?
I don’t think this will ever take off due to the fact that it will probably never gain legitimacy (the acceptance and backing of the people).
