Vietnam Requires Gov't Vetting of Business Websites 32

bhsurfer writes "Vietnam is now requiring government permission for businesses to set up websites. This article on yahoo give a brief rundown. The Ministry of Culture and Information came up with the rules, but hasn't given any info about the penalties for breaking them." The rules are apparently designed to combat the "increasing numbers of Vietnamese with access to news from outside sources." Update: 10/14 19:40 GMT by T :Sorry, that's 'Vietnam'.'

    U.S. is mere motions away from this. If recent precedent carries over to Net space, "Justice" Department will exercise this authority without consultation from the legislature.

    Care to back this claim up? Care to show us anything resembling this being proposed in the US?

    And, for the record, I wouldn't call a nation doing something like this a `liberal democracy', no matter what continent it's on. Would you?
