The rule that works for me is:

ATTR{idVendor}=="0001", ATTR{idProduct}=="0000", MODE="664", GROUP="nobody", OWNER="nobody"

And the permissions end up being like this:
# ls -l /dev/bus/usb/004/004 
crw-rw-r-- 1 nobody root 189, 387 ene 18 00:30 /dev/bus/usb/004/004

I'm running (k)ubuntu 13.10, so it's debian based.

Don't really know why the group is root instead of nobody, but it works this way.

Thanks for everything!
