Since the Internet was introduced as a new technology to the general public in the early 1990’s there have been moral and ethical issues associated with it. Some of the more known and problematic issues that have come out of the Internet are identity theft, virus and malware type infections, and unauthorized access to personal computers and mainframes through hackers. There have been many attempts to defend the general public against these attacks but it seems every day that there are new ethical and moral issues that arise. Due to the increase in these issues many countries have implemented laws that span across their entire region and there are even laws which have been implemented globally to fight back against these unethical acts. Another issue that the world has encountered due to the increase in technology and the Internet is porn and other addictive activities. Porn has made the Internet unsafe and in most cases immoral. The Internet is saturated with pornography and sites that are not suitable for the general public. There have been many meetings about the rights of the companies that put this content on the Internet and there are still mixed feelings when this subject is discussed. There are many sites and activities that are very addictive on the Internet. From online gaming to social networking people are becoming more and more addicted to online activity. There are many people who would rather spend time online playing a game or chatting on sites like Facebook and Twitter than spend time with their own children doing family oriented activities. One instance of where social networking took precedence over family is in the case of a Jacksonville, Florida woman who murdered her three month old child because he would not stop crying while she was trying to play Farmville ( http://jacksonville.com/news/crime/2010-10- 27/story/jacksonville-mom-shakes-baby-interrupting-farmville-pleads-guilty-murder ).

What students are saying

    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.
