Uma história do outro mundo mesmo aqui ao lado: a WikiLeaks publicou um telegrama da embaixada dos EUA em Madrid a explicar a tática para pressionar o governo espanhol a introduzir uma lei contra a pirataria. O interessante era perceber quais os países que sofreram acções semelhantes.
"We propose to tell the new government that Spain will appear on the Watch List if it does not do three things by October 2008. First, issue a [Government of Spain] announcement stating that Internet piracy is illegal, and that the copyright levy system does not compensate creators for copyrighted material acquired through peer-to-peer file sharing. Second, amend the 2006 “circular” that is widely interpreted in Spain as saying that peer-to-peer file sharing is legal. Third, announce that the GoS [Government of Spain] will adopt measures along the lines of the French and/or UK proposals aimed at curbing Internet piracy by the summer of 2009."
