You must be kidding, or you must have missed some recent italian pearls ;)
We have laws asking people to attach special stickers to every authorized copy 
of copyrighted work (this one has been mostly dropped now, after a long 
debate), or asking people to send and register in two national libraries a 
copy of every version of everything published on the internet, or asking 
people to make sure that every informative and regularly updated site on the 
Internet has a state-sanctioned (through an exam) known responsible person.
And don't get me started on laws where almost all MPs said "it's is a really 
broken law, so right now we'll approve it and then we'll change it later".  
Of course it has yet to be changed but police has been instructed not to 
enforce it. ;)
