Assignment Choice #1: Ethics and Intellectual Property

Discuss a current ethical issue in the business world that arises out of intellectual property. Research and discuss at least one case to illustrate the ethical issue. Some questions to consider include:

  • Why is it important to protect intellectual property?
  • How can intellectual property be protected?
  • Do intellectual protections ever go “too far”?
  • What is the proper balance between content producers and the public good?

Your well-written paper should be 3-4 pages in length, not including the title or references pages.  Include a minimum of two scholarly sources beyond the textbook. Review the grading rubric, which can be accessed from the Course Information page, and make sure to follow the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements. Please be sure to reach out to your instructor early in the week if you have any questions about the assignment.
