Links and Downloads

Hi again.
This time I’m here to try to clarify the following matter.
If there is a link located in another site for a product added here, and if the link is enabled, it will be counted as downloaded in OpenDesktop / Pling, or it will be “considered as if someone tried to download the same file twice via the same user” ?

Incredible! Even OpenDestop team doesn’t have an answer for this… at least, it seems!
