Today I saw ubuntus logo on a banner in a torrent tracker.... It appears that the site http://www.ziddu.com/ is using ubuntus logo as a picture for the explaining of the SHARE part of the file hosting (" Share. Be it passion for photography or love for videos; here is super-easy to share all that you have! ") ..... look the pictures or look at the site... Is this legal ? What is your opinion ?

Downloading movies from the internet isn't illegal in a lot of countries.

The fact you know what an r5 release is says enough about your downloading habits, so don't judge other peoples habits.

I hate it when crappy little companies use other people's graphics as their stock images. I bet you it was no more than a google image search.
