But as a result of the unanimous reaction, which was totally opposed to this measure as a result as it is a frontal attack to freedom in the web* (which comes just at the same time as the "canon", a new tax to make you pay more for the digital hard disks, just in case you copy material which is protected), a new law project has erased that article.
Anyway the Web Surfers Association has asked for an urgent meeting of the CATSI to make the Government inform them about the next modifications. They also want to study the lack of agreement surrounding the canon and other matters about the private copy.
*State Council critisized the project hardly saying that it was a special petition made by SGAE, in a late move and without giving any information to the consumers or to the tecnical consultive council for the information society (CATSI).
