AbstractThis book explores the issues central to digital media ethics, including questions bout privacy, intellectual property, citizenship, and ethical issues connected with the digital production of pornography and gaming. The author discusses how ethical theories can be used to explore the ethical issues being discussed in each chapter. The author uses examples from around the world, such as diverse understandings of what 'privacy' means in "Facebook" or "MySpace"; why pirating CDs and DVDs may be justified in developing countries; and, culturally-variable perspectives on sexuality and what counts as 'pornography' Each chapter further includes additional resources and suggestions for further research and writing.
