The Spanish ‘Sinde’ anti-piracy legislation came into effect this week, but one artist is actively trying to hamper it. Eme Navarro usually releases his music under a Creative Commons licence, according to TorrentFreak, but has released a new song with all rights reserved, and arranged for hundreds of local sites to link to it – thus infringing its copyright. And Navarro has now started reporting all the sites to the Spanish Ministry of Culture, with its new anti-piracy commission obliged to process the requests in order of arrival. “The aim of this action is testing this law and being the first ones who use it in order to show the absurdity and the censorship that it will bring,” says the ‘Hacktivistas’ group that has worked with Navarro on the scheme.
