Creativity and innovation are very important in the debate on intellectual property rights. An artist who posts his or her latest work on the web might see it used on social media—with the artists name still attached.

In today’s business world, the Internet is used by employees to conduct even the most mundane of daily tasks. Because employers need to protect their assets, many businesses choose to use monitoring software on company computers to monitor employee use of the Internet, including e-mail and website visits.

This is an ethical issue between employees and employers, but it is not the only issue regarding digital surveillance.
