China looking at registering real names of bloggers

"China Internet Association Councilor Hu Qiheng said bloggers may have to identify themselves when they register, but can continue to write their blogs under a pseudonym.

By the end of 2006, the number of bloggers in China had reached 20.8 million, of whom 3.15 million are active writers, according to the China Internet Survey Report 2007 released earlier this month.

China had 137 million people online by the end of last year, up by almost a quarter from 2005, according to the China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC)." LINK
