Oh yeah, art. 86 it's a HUGE bug.
But this not solve the bug, because art. 86 actually assert that *this  
kind of rights* cannot be waived, so it's ok with civil code.
Moreover there are another possibility based on our strict  
interpretation rules to solve this king of legal conflict, but as you  
know, in our tradition each judicial decision only has relative  
effects and not settle jurisprudence.

Actually right now we're in reformation process of our copyright law  
in accordance with our US FTA. In this reformation process, congress  
men are very concern on statue a law that not solve the legal absurd  
on the digital world. Last year we were in our Representative Camera  
and Senate to present this and another copyright issues as NGO  
Derechos Digitales and also as CC local chapter, and we really think  
that this project can resolve, if not all of them, a lot of copyright  
problems that our law have. Senators also have emotional arguments in  
order to statue a law that treat his children as thieves :). I've  
write a post in my weblog about this [http://www.quemarlasnaves.net/2008/01/30/senadores-se-refieren-a-las-descargas-por-internet-buenas-y-malas-noticias/
