Caption from Simisai Also Licence: "Ministers who touch more than 500 bananas are required to apply for a Touch My Banana Licence."
Once again, the MDA shows us their "light touch" of the Internet, according to this Reuters report: http://mrbrwn.co/13gWfGx
Online news sites that report regularly on issues relating to Singapore and have significant reach among readers here will require an individual license, Singapore's Media Development Authority (MDA) said in a statement…
Conditions for the sites that require individual licenses, which have to be reviewed annually, include a performance bond of S$50,000 ($39,700) and a requirement that objectionable content be removed within 24 hours when directed by the MDA.
The MDA said the new regulation did not apply to blogs, though adding: "If they take on the nature of news sites, we will take a closer look and evaluate them accordingly."
I guess when you can't shut people up, you make them apply for licence.
