CBS owns CNET, right?

by angrysloth / May 13, 2013 / 8:24 AM UTC

So CBS, via CNET delivers p2p (peer to peer) filesharing software to everyone and accompanies it with instructions on how to download copyrighted materials.

Then CBS sues everyone who downloads copyrighted materials.

Is this ethical y/n?
