The updated Fifth Edition includes new sections on Floridi’s Macroethics, gatekeepers and search engines, censorship, anti-piracy legislation, patents, and smartphones. Real-life case studies, including all-new examples focusing on Google, Facebook, video games, reader’s rights, and the Lulz Sec Hackers, provide real-world context. Ideal for undergraduate computer ethics courses as well as a general readership, Cyberethics is an excellent resource for students and laypeople alike.

    I rented this book for my class and might decide to buy it in spite of the price. Spinello writes clearly and intelligently and fairly about many issues facing us today. Excellent.
