Information Ethics: Privacy and Intellectual Property provides an up-to-date discussion of the main ethical issues that face today's information-intensive society, including the areas of intellectual property rights, privacy, accessibility and censorship. The explosive growth of information technology, increased competition in the global marketplace, and the rush to use information in an effort to protect society from terrorism has led to the unintended erosion of rights and duties that are often considered fundamental. Through chapters written by some of today's leading information ethics researchers, this book provides the reader with a thorough overview of the current state of information ethics, the dangers and opportunities presented by information technology, and potential solutions to the risks currently faced by today's information society.
