Google has disabled user uploads and comments on the Korean version of its YouTube video portal in reaction to a new law that requires the real name of a contributor be listed along each contribution they make.

and "However, since the changes are only effective for YouTube's Korean-language site, domestic users are still able to post videos on it if they set their country preference to one other than South Korea."

<< One of the coolest things about orkut is how it allows us all to form communities around the things that we care about. Personally, I love jumping into discussion forums and talking about my favorite topics with other people who share my enthusiasm.

More and more, however, we've noticed that the anonymous posts feature has been making it hard to have the kind of fun and meaningful conversations that everyone looks forward to in orkut communities. Instead of quality posts, we've been seeing a lot of spammy and abusive comments from anonymous users. >>
