File sharing admins jailed for linking to copyright works

The administrators of two file-sharing sites have been sentenced to fines and a year in jail for linking to copyright works.

Breaking a long run of operators being acquitted for similar activities, a Spanish court decided that the act of linking constituted a for-profit public communication�. The lawyer for one of the defendants has denounced the decision, saying that it can only be understood in political terms�.
