DIGITAL MEDIA ETHICS 

There are numerous offenses and crimes happening in the realm of the world wide web.  Digital media refers to the texts, videos, audio recordings, and photos uploaded and shared on the internet. There are numerous offenses and crimes happening in the realm of the world wide web.  Digital media refers to the texts, videos, audio recordings, and photos uploaded and shared on the internet. Some individuals or groups intentionally spread malware or malicious software to unassuming computer owners. This would cause damage to their files and hardware.   There are also concerns over cybersecurity and cases of invasion of privacy.   An example is the case of Apple and FBI wherein Apple insists on data privacy to protect its users while FBI asks for access to their technology to be able to track down a shooter responsible for killing more than a dozen people.

Copyright infringement is also rampant on the internet.  Different agencies of the government work together to protect copyright and apprehend violators.  In extreme cases, digital media has been a venue for cyberwar between nations or political groups.  In 2010, the case of WikiLeaks demonstrated how cyberwar worked.   The internet is not your typical battlefield wherein you can see your opponents.  These malicious cyber activities require only a few people and limited resources to start a war.  The problem is that it is hard to go after the perpetrators as they could be anywhere around the globe.  These examples of crimes and offenses on the internet have shown that they have grown in scope and magnitude.  They can affect an individual person or an entire nation.
