Hey, Steve, looks like you tend to turn for a moral and spiritual guidance to your… accountant? ;)

Is your "doing the right thing" based on a profit calculation?

Are you honest only when it contributes to your bottom line?

And when your bottom line is in red, I guess it would be o.k. to cheat and steal?





Slobodan, that used to be called situation ethics.

I doubt that Joseph Fletcher had in mind saving your bottom (line, that is) as the lofty end, worth sacrificing ethical principles for ;)

Principle must be admired, but it's not always conducive to the bottom line.

Principles aren't truly tested until there's money involved.

Harri,

With the way some readers of this forum talk about camera lust, that might just put you in the minority :)

Ahhh… how quickly this thread has degenerated… from copyright to ad hominem, from ethics to accountants, only to end up where all human interest usually ends up: sex! And not just any sex, but the kinky one :D

Only kinky if you consider the camera envy folks. For the rest of us, perfectly normal.

The real question though might be, if I have sex with an accountant to apologise for an ad hominem attack and we sing along to the music playing on the radio while someone videotapes it, have we breached any ethics or copyright? And who owns the rights to the video?

Seriously though, debates like this will always exist and as I said earlier, its really up to the individual to do the right thing.

We've heard from at least two opposing positions that have run the gamut from refusing to hire anyone that does not completely adhere to copyright all the way to, "leave it be, we're not hurting anyone and if it comes to making money, I'm fully prepared to leave my principles at the door"

Just for the record, I"m mostly with feppe on this point. The very least we should do is remind people that copyright exists and educate them. After that, I believe my role as a missionary is over.

Joe, after your roll with the accountant, who'd be a missionary?
