Socialist party wants to ban Creative Commons Portugal in

Something is rotten in Portugal:

The Socialist Party will present this new proposal for approval in the next Government, no matter if they win the elections or not. In regards to Creative Commons, they support a vision where Creative Commons harm Culture, and in this law proposal they intend to turn them illegal.

The law proposal makes it impossible to alienate the rights that Creative Commons licenses were designed to give back to the users.

If you match this idiotic proposal with the strong push in Brasil to undo the progress made by Lula and his government with Creative Commons and Free Software you get a nasty picture of Portuguese speaking countries.
