Music industry in Spain accept demise of 3 strikes?

The entertainment industry in Spain, in the form of the Coalition of Creators and Content Industries, has reportedly changed its campaigning focus away from pushing for 3 strikes and towards throttling the service of suspected copyright infringers.
"In his first public appearance as Coalition president, Aldo Olcese acknowledged that users are "our current and future clientele," and that punitive measures were out of the question. "We have no desire to criminalize Internet users who download illegally," he said.

Olcese was speaking just three days after Spanish Internet Service Provider (ISP) association Redtel announced that it would refuse to hold more talks with the Coalition, until the government comes up with a solution to piracy in Spain."
