• What are "Internet Ethics" and why are they important?
(Paul Hyland, Senior Web Developer, Exit1 Inc.)
– Internet ethics seeks to come up with a code of conduct and
disclosure obligation for those who communicate on the Internet.
The primary aim of this code will be to reduce to a minimum
dashed exceptions for those who use this medium. Because of
the exponential expansion of the Internet as a global medium for
social interaction, commerce and marketplace of ideas, what is
at stake here is no less than the harmony of the human race
itself. (Dr. Aaron Levine, Samson and Helin Bitensky Professor
of Economics, Yeshiva University)

• Should the same moral standards apply to the
internet as apply to other forms of
communication, or should we develop (evolve)
new norms for this new world? (Dr. Chris
MacDonald, Post-Doctoral Fellow Department of
Bioethics, Dalhousie University)
– Our moral standards must be the same. Standards of
etiquette, however, are rightly different. (Dr. Kenneth
D. Pimple, Research Associate Indiana UniversityBloomington; Poynter Center for the Study of Ethics
and American Institutions)

• Is it ethical to set a visible page counter to
a high number and thus give the
impression that the site receives lots of
traffic?
– No. That would be a lie. Lying is always
unethical. (Dr. Kenneth D. Pimple, Research
Associate Indiana University-Bloomington;
Poynter Center for the Study of Ethics and
American Institutions).
