"Attitudes regarding the ethical use of computers are compared in samples of business students from universities in the United States and Australia. The two groups are statistically significantly different on seventeen of the twenty-six ethics questions. Significant differences were found in attitudes toward property and privacy issues; attitudes toward ethics in employee-employer relations were not significantly different. In general, students in Australia tend to take ethical positions supporting greater freedom of action for computer users, while students in the United States take more restrictive positions."
