Summary Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) have profoundly changed many aspects of life, including the nature of entertainment, work, communication, education, healthcare, industrial production and business, social relations and conflicts. They have had a radical and widespread impact on our moral lives and hence on contemporary ethical debates. This book provides an introduction to the field, with discussions of a range of topics including privacy, ownership, freedom of speech, responsibility, technological determinism, the digital divide, cyber warfare, and online pornography. It offers a survey of the transformations brought about by ICTs and their implications for the future of human life and society, for the evaluation of behavior, and for the evolution of moral values and rights. It deals with the ethical aspects of the information society in which we live
