Piracy in Spain seems to have its days numbered. The new blow that the Ministry of Culture and Sports has dealt to web pages intended for the distribution of content illegally has put almost 900 domains in check.

When it comes to talking about piracy, the logical relationship that is made is as follows: series, movies and music. Yes, these three artistic representations are the ones that suffer the most from piracy, but they are not the only ones and this has been seen in web screening.

What the actions of the Ministry of Culture and Sports have done has been discover a total of 172 main domains and 697 subdomains. After inspecting them and making sure that their activity was illegal, what they have done has been to close them.

Among these domains, what have been found are websites dedicated to both series and movie piracy, but in others the illegal content was books scanned or uploaded in PDF files so that any user can access them.

Of course, they have not been able to miss video games on this list or musicals. And, it is that, it seems that any type of audiovisual product is exposed to the different groups of users destined to piracy decide to do so.

This move by the Ministry of Culture and Sport makes Spain join several countries such as Germany or Portugal in the fight for piracy. The way in which they have acted can make web pages dedicated to offering this type of content think twice before doing so.
