AbstractThe objective of this paper is to draw inferences regarding the ethical use of software by individuals in public and private sector organizations. The research results indicate a significant correlation between the code of ethics and the attitude of professionals towards the unethical use of software in government and private sector organizations. These also indicate significant differences in government and private sectors.
