Sometimes, however, the application of different ethical theories to a particular problem will yield similar solutions. We will examine in detail some standard ethical theories, including utilitarianism, in Chapter 2. Our main concern in this textbook is with applied, or practical, ethics issues, and not with ethical theory per se. Wherever appropriate, however, ethical theory will be used to inform our analysis of moral issues involving cybertechnology. Understanding cyberethics as a ﬁeld of applied ethics that examines moral issues pertaining to cybertechnology is an important ﬁrst step.
Should users who create accounts on SNSs with the intention to deceive or harass others be subject to criminal prosecution? Should MySpace have been held legally liable, at least in some contributory sense, for Meier’s death? Also, do ordinary users of an SNS who discover that someone is being bullied in that online forum have a moral responsibility to inform the SNS? 1 Defining Key Terms: Cyberethics and Cybertechnology b 3 discover that someone has created a fraudulent account on their forum, which could be used to deceive and harass other members?
Finally, the justiﬁcation of a policy requires much factual knowledge, as well as an understanding of normative and ethical principles. Consider the controversies surrounding the original Napster Web site and the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), in the late 1990s, regarding the free exchange of music over the Internet. Proponents on both sides of this dispute experienced difﬁculties in making convincing arguments for their respective positions due, in no small part, to confusion regarding the nature and the status of information (digitized music in the form of MP3 ﬁles) being exchanged between Internet users and the technology (P2P systems) that facilitated this exchange.
