Introduction and table of contents

Copyright Peter Timusk © 2000

his web site explores computer ethics through various crimes, and legal situations, that involve computers. It is written by a student of computer ethics, who also happens to be a reformed hacker. He has not hacked a computer, rather has not cracked a computer since 1978.  In 1976 he gained access to a computer club account on an IBM mainframe at McMaster University, where he later studied and worked in data entry.  He also "hacked" complex FORTRAN programs for money, and sold them to his employer.  This combined with his literary interests developed into his ideas on copyrighting programs and data. He is obsessive about data integrity and that tips the scales of justice in his favour.
