Question and answer
Discuss the following topic: Laws do not provide a complete guide to ethical behavior. An activity can be legal but not ethical.
A relationship exists between law and ethics. In some instances, law and ethics overlap and what is perceived as unethical is also illegal. In other situations, they do not overlap. [ In some cases, what is perceived as unethical is still legal, and in others, what is illegal is perceived as ethical. A behavior may be perceived as ethical to one person or group but might not be perceived as
ethical by another. Further complicating this dichotomy of behavior, laws may have been legislated, effectively stating the government’s position, and presumably the majority opinion, on the behavior. As a result, in today’s diverse business environment, one must consider that law and ethics are not necessarily the same thing. read more @ ]

Weegy: Cyber crime encompasses any criminal act dealing with computers and networks (called hacking). [ [ Additionally, cyber crime also includes traditional crimes conducted through the Internet. Cyber crimes in the United States is becoming very prevalent and serious, this could include online scams, also here in the U.S we remain the highest target for cyber crimes. There should not be any mysteries as far as how to solve or lessen cybercrime as we all know that our government has more advanced technology than we can possible imagine. We are literally tracked every second we spend online. [ The experienced hacker/computer programmer coupled with the best software/what have you...cyber crime should not be an issue by any means. The catch 22 is this: We are the criminals so why would we spend the $$$$ to turn ourselves in (to the public eye that is) There will never be a 'control' over this issue for it was formulated by the people for the people to slowly but surely...eliminate the people. ] Yes, definitely because at least it can guarantee us safety in the worldwide web. ] ] (More)

Provide an example of a “gift” that falls in the gray area between a gift and a bribe.
Weegy: Well if the gift is demanded than is a bribe ...For instance, a business person giving an excessive amount of money as a wedding gift to the son of one of the most influential government officials. His money was literally a wedding gift. [ However, shortly after the wedding, the business person informs this government dignitary indirectly that he needs a permit to expand his business. Gift or bribe? Formally, the money was a wedding gift, but, informally, it may be interpreted as a bribe for his business. ] (More)
