The Spanish Internet law and censorship

Topics: Blogosphere, Culture and Society, Internet, Internet Security

I blogged some days ago about the possible introduction of an article, 17.bis, in the new Internet law -not yet enacted- by which SGAE (the General society of the authors and editors) could shut web pages if the SGAE thinks they are illegal.

David Bravo explains it this way:

"If a web page is reproducing intelectual works which could go against author's rights, the SGAE or any other similar association will be able to tell the server where the blog/page is located to inform that the blog's author is breaking the law. The client will be obliged to defend him before the SGAE of the illegality in the next 6 days if he does not want to see his blog's content down or closed. Even if the communication is absolutely ridiculous or unmaintainable, it obliges the normal blogger/website's author to defend himself to regain access to the presumably illicit content".
