Links to copyrighted material

This has probably been covered before, but I am rather new to this list. The question is: Are there any copyright implications of hyperlinking to copyrighted material? It seems that sites like CNET, have made this their business model, and I was curious if they linked with permission or not. And whether they paid any sort of licensing fees or not.

I can understand how it would be in the best interest of the destination site to be linked to a site like CNET, it would increase the traffic to the site. However, if one wished to stop someone from linking to a copyrighted site without permission, are there grounds?
