Google "It's never the offence; it's the cover-up. And if there's one thing that the last few years have taught us, it's that the suggestion of a 'rogue' worker having acted alone to do something which led to an intrusion is never correct. There has to be a failure of management oversight as well. That's why Google is in such hot water now over the revelations contained in the Federal Communications Commission report into what went wrong with its Street View Wi-Fi data collection program." What a total and utter surprise: company does bad stuff, tries to cover it up. Sometimes I think I'm the only person in the world who grasps that companies - they are not to be trusted. This really isn't rocket science, people.

Not true. For example, according to the law it's OK to be an asshole and shout at funerals (like that Westboro Baptist church/lawyer cult). But just because that's legal, it doesn't make it ethical all of a sudden. The law simply has to define a boundary in a grey zone and must err towards innocent until proven guilty. One of the consequences is that unethical assholes walk free, but that's the price you pay for freedom.

I did not say law encodes ALL ethics.
