Yeah, but producers of malicious software, spyware, viruses, hackers and hacker groups like Anonymous and their affiliates, criminal activity, child
predators, exploiters/pornographers etc. have made anonymity online too dangerous... THEY don't want your freedom, they don't want you to expose
yourselves to unnecessary risks such as identity theft etc, they want accountability and responsibility.
Laws which make it easier use effective surveillance methods to track down cyber-criminals who hide behind online anonymity.
If you have nothing to hide, why would that be a problem?
This is less like an invasion of privacy, and more like passing through security going into a facility, office etc.
For the vast majority of people online, nothing will change.
But, it could be a slippery slope, so freedom loving people everywhere should monitor these moves and stay as informed as possible, but regardless
these changes will come eventually and you can thank the criminals for making it all possible. People should be able to support rational and logical
changes to make the internet a safer place for everyone, and a much more dangerous place for cyber-crime and cyber-criminals.
Are they going to catch them all? .... No, but they can make it much more difficult for them to hide, and/or easier to track them down.
