Computer and telecommunication are becoming uncircumventable tools. Knowledge is available everywhere, all the time.

Much of this is information about our finances, our health and the way we live which we would not want made public, let alone misused for someone else

CHAPTER SEVEN Information ethics: expectations and rights Ethics has exercised the minds of thoughtful people for at least 3000 years, probably ever since human beings started to live together in communities. The proper balance between the rights and freedoms of the individual and the advancement of the greater good is a vital aim. Even animals of the same species have an instinctive code of behaviour towards each other which contributes to the continuation of the species. For human society, frequent review of ethical principles is important. As Bernard

CHAPTER NINE Information ethics: intellectual property, privacy and data protection So far, in discussing rights to seek, know and disseminate infor- mation, the only limitations to those rights considered have been those that would arise from misuse of the information.

East–West Perspectives on Privacy, Ethical Pluralism and Global Information Ethics Charles Ess, Drury Introduction: the Manichean Problem Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) are both primary drivers and facilitating technologies of globalization—and thereby, of ex- ponentially expanding possibilities of cross-cultural encounters. Currently, over one billion persons throughout the planet have access to the Web: of these, Asian users constitute 35.8% of the Web population, while Europeans make up 28.3 % of world users—and North Americans only

Introduction Due to the recent rapid growth of plagiarized materials ( Rosenberg 2011 ; Isoc 2014 ) “plagiarism on the rise” has become a disputable discourse.

Plagiarism is critical because it threatens researchers’ scientific outputs as knowledge assets in modern scientific societies. Information ethics is a realm that tries to provide an answer for this issue and its various dimensions. In a developing country like Iran, plagiarism is regarded as a serious problem affecting scientific
