Iran set to widen "computer crime" laws to include blogs, comments, more

http://j.mp/vDThRC  (Radio Zamaneh)
   "Iran's Parliament is preparing a proposal to widen the scope of
    computer crime laws to include text messages, weblogs and comments
    left on websites.  The computer crimes laws were established in 2009
    and they have their own special special courts process. According to
    those laws, producing content that goes against "public modesty and
    morals, sanctities and officials, as well as public and government
    bodies" is subject to criminal charges."
