AbstractThis book provides modern coverage of the ethics that surround information technology. It introduces ethical theories early and uses them throughout the book to evaluate moral problems related to information technology. Earlier chapters focus on issues concerned with the individual computer user including, email, spam, intellectual property, open source movement, free speech, and Web censorship. Later chapters focus on issues with greater impact on society as a whole such as privacy, computer and network security, and computer error. The final chapter discusses professionalism and the Software Engineering Code of Ethics.
