Abstract

Since the inception of the Internet in the late 1960´s, technological advances in the field of Information Communications Technology (ICT) have created an ever-expanding digital arena for the development of human innovation, education, expression, communication and interaction. However, the creation and use of this vast network of knowledge, whether it is for educational, commercial, entertainment or creative purposes, has also produced its own set of ethical challenges. This paper discusses the ethical implications associated with the topics of veracity, identity and ownership and the impact of these fundamental ethical issues on human behaviour in emerging digital technologies.
