> considered as a press product, and it has to print the name
> of the publisher (or the editor) and the city where it is
> published (whatever this could mean).
> If the site includes news or is updated periodically, which
> would be the case of a webzine or of a site with a news
> section, it falls under these following laws valid for
> newspapers and periodical press:
> 1) it has to declare a responsible managing editor, that has
> to be enlisted in the professional Order of Journalists 2) it has
> to pay a tax (of about 200$) 3) it has to be registered in the
> lists of the tribunal of the city where it is published.
