The possibility of using all kinds of soware to download content for free—music, movies, ebooks, videogames or software— makes it easy for any person with an online connection to infringe copyrighted material. Due to this, the entertainment industry is loosing millions of dollars every year. Hence, more than a few lawsuits have been brought against peer-to-peer (P2P) users in different parts of the world, creating different legal opinions that either defend or condemn the use of P2P technology, generating, in some cases, important judicial sanctions that have resulted, in most of them, unreasonable. The purpose of this dissertation is to analyze the antinomy between protecting copyright and the preservation of the right to privacy, from the perspective of habeas data rights in relation to the use of P2P software.
