Musician Eme Navarro complains

Spain passed a law that allows the government to block web sites that infringe on copyright law, based on complaints by copyright holders.

To resist the law, the group Hackivistas encouraged sites to link to a copyrighted track by the musician Eme Navarro, who stands with them against the new law.  Mr. Havarro then reports all the sites to the government, which has to review all the requests.

Their goal is to overload the government with complaints and slow down the review process.
