According to an article published in the newsletter of our Mexican member, CeMPro, a new criminal justice system is now in place in that country. 
The new system replaces one where each federative entity (state) had its own criminal legislation and procedures. The new system aims at providing more legal security, speeding up justice processes in general and reducing corruption in the chain of legal procedures. In the opinion of experts, the new system might result in less trials since it offers alternative mechanisms to solve conflicts. 
With regard to CeMPro and its activity, the newly introduced system, includes provisions related to copyright offences.
