Business school 'hack' raises ethical questions

Tuesday, 22 March 2005, 2:32 PM EST

Where do morality and ethics end, and criminality begin? What is the appropriate "punishment" for the crime of curiosity coupled with the act of snooping? These questions have been raised once again in the case of a number of applicants to the US' most prestigious business schools who went beyond the normal processes to sneak a peek at the status of their applications. The question is, how should the law and society deal with these individuals, and how do we build a society in cyberspace that is not only legally compliant but moral and ethical? Indeed, the larger question is, have we yet established a sufficiently coherent set of rules of right and wrong in cyberspace to pass moral (as apposed to legal) judgment on others?
