18212000 story Spanish Congress Rejects Internet Censorship Law 229 Posted by samzenpus on Thursday December 23, 2010 @02:44AM from the no-one-expects-the-spanish-opposition dept. TuringTest writes "A commission of the Spanish Congress has rejected a law that allowed the closure of web sites that provide unauthorized downloads. The government couldn't reach enough support from its allies, not because they opposed the law in principle, but because of the way it was redacted and the lack of negotiation. Recently the Spanish Senate rejected a law on net neutrality. Also the Wikileaks cables disclosed pressure from the USA on the Spanish government to pass a law to reduce Internet sharing of music and media, which is legal in Spain."
