There is a protest of course, including an ongoing suit in the
Constitutional Court to judge the unconstitutionality of the law.

Still millions of people here are supporting the law, since they
attribute the cause of the recent suicides of celebrities to the
dishonoring gossips about them spreading around in the internet, and
they believe that the obligating people's own personal identifications
to websites would help to prevent any immorality.
