The Spanish government has reworked its proposals for fast-track shutdowns of sites accused of facilitating piracy. The original proposal was announced in November, and would have allowed its new intellectual property commission to order websites to be shuttered. Following criticism, the reworked version requires the authorisation of a judge, while still aiming to keep the process to less than four days. The measure is part of a wider Sustainable Economy Law that has yet to be voted on by the Spanish Parliament. The contrast with France is striking – file-sharers are the target of the French government’s anti-piracy legislation, while the Spanish government is going after file-sharing sites instead.
