Anti-internet piracy law adopted by Spanish government
Posted in: Government & Policy at 05/01/2012 19:08
The Spanish government has approved tough new legislation which could see websites deemed to be trading in pirated material blocked within ten days.
The legislation creates a government body with powers to force internet service providers to block sites.
It comes as the US plans to adopt similar tough new rules.
The crackdown on piracy has been welcomed by the creative industries but criticised by net activists.
