Abstract: The nature of ethics on the Internet may be confusing to many social workers because of the unique characteristics of client contact in cyberspace. Social workers are not alone in noting the complexity of online ethics. Computer professionals are equally perplexed by ethical issues. We can find journal articles (i.e., The Journal of Computer Information Systems and SIGUCCS Newsletter) and books (i.e., Case Studies in Information and Computer Ethics) for computer science personnel, which specifically express the difficulties of establishing ethical standards of cyberspace professional and nonprofessional interaction.
