A real case study in which a technician discovers pornography on an administrator's personal computer is developed for use in teaching ethics and computing. The case highlights issues of employee rights and responsibilities in using employer-owned computing resources, competing responsibilities in professional codes of ethics, claims about rights to privacy and free speech, and ethical decision-making. Analysis of the case emphasizes the need for strong critical thinking skills.
