Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) has introduced a new tax for all content creators, be it bloggers, website owners or even YouTubers as they have to first register and get a license, this has brought massive chaos online.
All persons engaged in digital and broadcast communications services are required to seek authorization from UCC before October 5th.
The directive is contained in a public notice issued by the Uganda Communications Commission to digital broadcasters this morning.
The media regulator indicates that all persons currently offering or planning to commence the provision of online data communication and broadcast services including blogs, online television and related content must seek clearance prior to streaming.
