According to the article, "the ruling comes after the Guardia Civil charged Barcelona video games shop Innovagames", and it's explained: "The judge noted that such modifications 'might constitute a crime against the intellectual property of the equipment manufacturers', but he concluded that there is a legal loophole in the 'Ley de Propiedad Intelectual' (Intellectual Property Law) which means that they are, by default, legal."
