So should I go ahead to buy links too since it doesn't seem like it is illegal if there is no penalty?
Some people rob banks and don't get caught either.
The penalty doesn't always relate to the crime.
In this case, its pretty difficult to get any consensus on what is 'right and wrong' in links.
I would say it is more fair to look at and analyze what is seen, and what is not seen as a paid link.
