15 August 2017 Social Issues and Professional Practice Department of Computer Science, University of Cape Town 1. The Revised Notes We have been revising the notes for the Social Issues and Professional Practice (formerly called Cyberlaw & Ethics) module. The new title reflects a new curriculum from the ACM (for more on this please Section 1.2 in the new notes). Unfortunately the revision is an extensive process and we have not completed the process. The most important and comprehensive changes have been made but two chapters still need to be updated. The file “bookCh1-4.pdf” contains the revised notes in the chapters 1. Introduction 2. Social Context 3. Analytical Tools 4. Professional Ethics The remaining chapters are still from the old notes and cover the topics Intellectual Property and Privacy and Civil Liberties from the new curriculum. Please see the files “EthicsCh5Privacy.pdf” and “EthicsCh7PropertyRights.pdf”. These contain the chapters “Chapter 5. Privacy” and “Chapter 7. Property Rights and Software” (sic). 2. Comments on the missing material in the older notes The older notes lack references to the South African situation and are also rather out of date. The following is an essential summary of updates. 2.1 Update: Chapter 5. Privacy South African Bill of Rights : 14. Privacy: Everyone has the right to privacy, which includes the right not to have: their person or home searched; their property searched; their possessions seized; or the privacy of their communications infringed. The Interception Act: The Regulation of Interception of Communications and Provision of Communication-Related Information Act ( ) allows police to intercept and monitor electronic communication.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
