Dubai sources have made a statement that the United Arab Emirates says it will now require anyone conducting "commercial activities" through social media to register for a government-issued license. Meanwhile the new rules announced target so-called "social media influences," who parlay their internet fame into advertising products.

Moreover those affected need to register by the end of June or face 5,000-dirham ($1,360) fines.
Further the UAE, while liberal in many regards compared to its Middle
Eastern neighbors, has strict laws governing expression. Sources have made a
statement that people also have been jailed for their comments online.
