The modern communication technologies play an intrinsic part in the development of the strong, interdependent community of the 21st century. They will not only allow for the more widespread and rapid spread of ideas in developing countries, but it will also allow them to participate in the global economy, of which technology is an intrinsic part. The modern communication technologies have changed so radically in the past two decades that we no longer even know what is ethical, let alone legal. This book shows why communication has changed, why it is now impossible to think about communication the way we are accustomed to thinking, and proposes a workable framework defining ethical communication in the internet era. Students and academics in communications, media and technology studies will appreciate the accessible style of the book and the insights it offers.
