Website Filtering Voted Down in Spain

Spain is again in the news with its major development: the country’s Sustainable Economy Act doesn’t include the controversial provision of forcing broadband providers to block sites alleged of facilitating copyright violations anymore. Although the piracy war is not over yet, this move still seems to be a great victory for civil rights organizations.


Spain has been mentioned in the news quite often recently, with the reports emerging on the exposure of international pressure from the US to push through a controversial legislation in the country, according to the Wikileaks Cablegate story. The published cable revealed that the US entertainment industry representatives threatened to put it on a 301 watch list if Spain fails to meet their demands on the copyright front. The list of requirements included a “three-strikes” regime modeled after French HADOPI. However, now it looks like the pressure from the United States may have backfired somewhat since the provision in the Act, which would force Internet service providers to deny access to sites after getting a call from the Culture Ministry, has been voted down.

Actually, the Sustainable Economy Act is widely known as the Sinde Act, and was called so by Spanish observers after the country’s culture minister Ángeles González-Sinde. Even the minister’s appointment was highly controversial, as some critics suggested she had a conflict of interest because of her past life of a filmmaker.

Meanwhile, the war over the Act is not over, because there are some other controversial provisions of the law – for example, forcing broadband providers to reveal subscriber information prior to a court order. All the aspects that remain in the bill after the removal of website blocking chapter are currently moving to the Senate and will be discussed in 2011.

The Spanish Association of Internet users, which is a vocal critic of the proposed bill, stated that the will of the people have ceased the pressures of foreign governments on their representatives. They also described the Sinde bill as an invasion on to national democracy and even came further to blame it for “direct and open attack” on country’s citizens from foreign interests. Just as this provision of the law struck down, Twitter exploded with the virtual celebrations.

No avatarGood that at least SOME of this idiotic legislation is gone. As 'free' citizens in the 'free' world, we should all be extremely concerned about the subversive and politicised interests of VERY RICH companies, in fact some of the WEALTHIEST companies in the world. We have to remember we are under DIRECT THREAT from both large or massive corporations and corporate led government. These companies and their senior directors have NO LOVE WHATSOEVER FOR ORDINARY OR POOR PEOPLE. F*** MONEY! SHARE LOVE! SHARE WHATEVER YOU CAN! BE COMPLETELY YOURSELF - NEVER MIND F*** HEADED CORRUPT GOVERNMENTS OR CORRUPT CORPORATIONS!!!!
