After three years of arduous litigation, Jesus Guerra Calderon, owner of both a small bar and the P2P link webpage 'elrincondejesus.com' has beaten the SGAE (something like the spanish version of the RIAA). An historical sentence states not only the legality of link webpages, but also the legality of P2P file sharing networks. Quoting the judge: "P2P Networks as mere data transmision networks between individual internet users, do not breach any rights protected by the Intelectual Property Law". Downloading a file (from a P2P network) for private use is perfectly legal as soon as there is no lucrative or collective use of the downloaded copy. English news links here and here."
