This includes both payment and recognition and is the reason behind copyright laws. One of several misconceptions many people have about plagiarism and copyright protection is that it does not apply to material on the Internet. But the truth is that words, pictures, and songs available on the Internet are as likely to be copyrighted as anything you might find in the library or the record store. Doing anything other than viewing the information on the Internet probably requires permission at least and perhaps payment. You can no more download and share Internet content, in most cases, than you can walk out of a music store with a handful of CD's you didn't pay

So many lawyers here, you know, it's impossible to keep up with us. If we have a trial, I'll get Brusier to go." Impersonating an attorney is more than an ethical violation, subject to ethical sanctions for J. Lyman Stone, as Deck's employer, but also a criminal act. Deck's only saving grace is that his business card did say "paralegal" not attorney at law. Rule 1-320 (B): Financial Arrangements With Non-Lawyers: A member shall not compensate, give or promise anything of value to any person or entity for the purpose of recommending or securing employment of the member or the member's law firm by a client, or as a reward for having made a recommendation resulting in employment of the member or the member's law firm by a client.
There is a lot of money to be made in the online prescription industry. The company spreads the wealth to doctors, pharmacies, online marketers, credit card companies ect. Jobs are created in several countries and many involved will claim they don’t realize what they are doing is unethically and in some instances illegal.

Vidding – Free Expression or Copyright Piracy? Instructor: Amy Goffinet BUS250: Corporate and Social Responsibility Lilia Rios October 06, 2013 Vidding is the practice of making new videos, sometimes called songvids or fanvids, which takes existing clips, usually from different sources (Lawrence & Weber, 2011).

1 A Rhetorical Analysis of “Online Goodies” The article “Online Goodies” written by John Lanchester and published by the “London Review of Books” in April of 2002, is a persuasive piece where Lanchester attempts to get his audience on the same page as him in regards to the illegal downloading of music files off the internet. He argues that the multi-billion dollar corporations that run the music industry's greed is to blame for most consumers having to resort to downloading music files off the internet for free. The audience Lanchester seems to be targeting is the younger generation of the early 2000's, the tech savvy young adults that were on top of all the internet advances of the time. In the article, Lanchester uses many rhetorical devices and appeals, such as informal language, humour, logos appeals, and the overall tone of the piece to persuade his audience into adopt his opinion on the music industry's affect on illegal downloads. While most writers try to use formal language to persuade their audience to adopt their opinions, Lanchester took a different approach.
