Here's a theoretical question for the group.

What if someone compiled copyrighted data (giving credit to the owners) onto a
CD, and gave it away for FREE, but made their money by having advertising
inside the contents -- would that be considered ethical?

For the record, it's NOT anything that I plan to do with the newsletter.
