EU wants to control bloggers

I just read an article which scared the hell out of me! There is an EU proposal to require a government controlled registry of blogs. No more anonymous blogging!

"there is a need to clarify their status, and to create legal safeguards for use in the event of lawsuits as well as to establish a right to reply" in other words each blog needs to have an publisher, just like a newspaper, and this will require you to register with the local authorities. No more whistle blowing through blogs...

I wonder how they plan to enforce this? Especially in a case like mine where the server resides outside the EU.
