Abstract

The Internet is a new medium that allows every person who is connected to it to become a publisher and to be able to share ideas and information. This is a phenomenon that I call the "New Sharing Ethic". This new sharing ethic is the subject of the present paper, in which the implications of the free flow of information in Cyberspace will be discussed.
