Shambhu Upadhyaya 4 Consider Your  Views  on Ethical  Behavior In every job situation, we are all eventually faced with an ethical  dilemma  How will you react?  How will you determine what the “right” course  of action is?  What are you willing to risk to do the “right thing”?    How far are you willing to bend?  And when? Recommendation:  As you read about these issues during your  studies, take time to reflect on what you would do

Shambhu Upadhyaya 5 Are Your Ethics Contextual? Are they unchanging or contextual? - Folks know that downloading music or software they don’t  own is illegal, but do so anyway because they don’t believe  that it hurts the owners of the IP (intellectual property) - You have an expectation of privacy (lockers, email, etc.)  except if there is suspicion of wrong doing - Never tell a lie….except if …… Somehow, legal doctrine must codify these complicated  and contextual courses of action

Shambhu Upadhyaya 6 Framework for Ethics What motivates us to view issues a certain way? Are we consistent in the way we approach ethical issues? How do we resolve conflicts in approach? Two basic camps:   - consequence-based and  - rule-based From: “Case Studies in Information and Computer Ethics”, Richard Spinello, Prentice-Hall, 1997

Shambhu Upadhyaya 7 Consequence-Based Ethics Priority is given to choices that lead to a “good” outcome  (consequence) The outcome outweighs the method Egoism : the “right choice” benefits self Utilitarianism : the “right choice” benefits the interests of  others
