[A2k] Spanish copyright law

So the Spanish government did not approve a proposed new copyright law.

Some say that some wikileaks cables showed strong industry influence on
the drafting and lobbying.  Nothing surprising here since it included
making it a crime to link to a web site that supposedly provides access
to copyrighted content... something that neither the DMCA, nor any FTA
-not even ACTA- qualified as "illegal" per se.

But of course there will be a Special 301 list and criminal
sanctions....and some more punishment such as more events organized by
the US Chamber of Commerce with totally biased (pro industry) and boring
speakers?
