Man arrested for leaking Madonna track
A man has been arrested in Spain and charged with illegally distributing a new song by the superstar Madonna.

The 31-year-old man posted a demo version of Give Me All Your Love online last month, which angered Madonna and her team.

Lawyers acting on behalf of the singer kicked into action and notified the authorities immediately.

They then got to work, using the latest technology to track down the self-confessed Madonna fan – they found him in the city of Zaragoza.

Last month, her manager Guy Oseary, took to the social networking site Twitter to vent his anger over the leak.

"Madonna told me this morning 'my true fans wouldn't do this,'" he wrote, indicating that the star was heartbroken about the leak revelation.

"The plan was for new music to come out in the New Year, and yet someone leaked a demo version of a song yesterday. I'm very happy with the positive reaction to the demo, but we are very upset with whoever leaked the song."
