Koenig and Rustad's Global Information Technologies: Ethics and the Law
This title uses state of the art legal cases, statutory developments, and mass culture references to evaluate and discuss computer ethics in a global setting. It applies ethical principles to the most important substantive legal fields that directly impact contemporary computer professionals: torts, cybercrimes, privacy, contracts, and all four branches of intellectual property. Each chapter illustrates ethical perspectives through the use of key legal decisions and thought-provoking discussion questions. Case studies are based upon legal opinions and regulations from the United States, the European Union, China, and the rest of the world.
