Submission + - Spanish Web Censorship Voted Down (zeropaid.com)

Dangerous_Minds writes: ZeroPaid is reporting that a part of the Sinde Act (named after Spanish filmmaker and Culture Minister Ángeles González-Sinde) which would allow the Culture Ministry to force ISPs to block websites suspected of facilitating copyright infringement, was voted down recently in Spain. This comes on the heals of Wikileaks exposing the amount of pressure US industry was putting on Spain to implement laws like the three strikes law seen in HADOPI in France. The Asociación de Internautas (Assocation of Internet Users), an organization who called the legislation an assault on Spanish democracy, is currently celebrating the news as a victory for Spanish democracy (Spanish).
