This is the first textbook on the central ethical issues of digitalmedia, ranging from computers and the Internet to mobile phones. Itis also the first book of its kind to consider these issues from aglobal perspective, introducing ethical theories from multiplecultures. It further utilizes examples from around the world, suchas the publication of "the Mohammed Cartoons"; diverseunderstandings of what "privacy" means in Facebook or MySpace; whypirating CDs and DVDs may be justified in developing countries; andculturally-variable perspectives on sexuality and what counts as"pornography." Readers and students thus acquire a globalperspective on the central ethical issues of digital media,including privacy, copyright, pornography and violence, and theethics of cross-cultural communication online.

The book is designed for use across disciplines - media andcommunication studies, computer science and informatics, as well asphilosophy. It is up-to-date, accessible and student- andclassroom-friendly: each topic and theory is interwoven throughoutthe volume with detailed sets of questions that foster carefulreflection, writing, and discussion into these issues and theirpossible resolutions. Each chapter further includes additionalresources and suggestions for further research and writing.
