Is it ethical to download copyrighted ebooks, that are available on amazon, google play or whatever and can be purchased, from torrent websites even if the version was original?
Autumnal

Pro

I accept. BoP is on both parties.

It's ethical to download the books for free because there is no objective reasoning that says you must buy them save for arbitrary currency with a value we make up.
