Week 14 Discussion

Heath Nicholson

What rights and responsibilities do you have to protect your privacy on the Internet?

As far as rights, we have the legal right to put anything we want that doesn’t breach the slander/libel/intellectual property laws. Our responsibly on the internet however are formed by ethics. We have a responsibility to help police and report material that might “cross the line”, a “line” formed by ethic and values. We need to do so because it is impossible for our government to successfully take this responsibility without violating our constitutional rights.

Individually, we are accountable for everything we put on the internet. Therefore it is in our best interests to consider what future repercussions our present actions might yield.
