Since CyberEthics first appeared only two short years ago, the social and technical landscape of cyberspace has undergone remarkable changes.  There are new technologies, for example, that make it easier to download digital music and movies.  At the same time, there have been extraordinary legal developments  -- new laws like the Children's Internet Protection Act and various court decisions -- defining new constraints for Web surfers.  New governance bodies have emerged such as ICANN, trying to impose order on this rapidly expanding network.

The primary purpose in this revised edition is to carefully review the social costs and moral problems that have been triggered by the expanded use of this communication and information network.  While some of these problems are familiar ones, many are new to the fields of computer ethics and public policy.
