Michael McGuire reports:

South Australia has become one of the few states in the world to restrict the internet under laws created by Attorney-General Michael Atkinson.

AdelaideNow reports the new law, which came into force on January 6, requires internet bloggers, and anyone making a comment on next month’s state election, to publish their real name and postcode when commenting on the poll.

The law will affect anyone posting a comment on an election story on The Advertiser’s AdelaideNow website, as well as other news sites such as The Punch, the ABC’s The Drum and Fairfax newspapers’ National Times site.
