Jet Li says he rejected The Matrix because he didn’t want his kung fu moves digitally recorded | Abacus
“I was thinking: I’ve been training my entire life. And we martial artists could only grow older. Yet they could own [my moves] as an intellectual property forever. So I said I couldn’t do that,” Li said.

In the present research, we examine antecedents
of ethical leadership by testing whether one source
of motivation for leaders to exhibit ethical behav-
iors arises from a self-defining knowledge structure
that several writers (e.g., Aquino & Reed, 2002;
Blasi, 1983, 2004; Damon & Hart, 1992; Lapsley &
Narvaez, 2004) refer to as moral identity . Our the-
oretical model posits that moral identity motivates
leaders to act in ways that demonstrate some re-
sponsiveness to the needs and interests of others,
an orientation that many philosophers (e.g., Kant,
1948) and psychologists (e.g., Eisenberg, 2000; Gil-
ligan, 1982) consider a defining characteristic of
moral behavior. We also explore consequences of
ethical leadership at the work-unit level by draw-
ing on social learning theory (Bandura, 1977, 1986).
We focus on unit-level outcomes because group
members exposed to similar cues in an environ-
ment regarding norms for appropriate behavior
tend to behave in a fairly homogeneous manner
(e.g., Salancik & Pfeffer, 1978). The specific out-
comes we examine include unethical behavior (i.e.,
behavior that is morally unacceptable to the larger
community [Jones, 1991]) and relationship conflict
(i.e., interpersonal strife associated with differ-
ences in personalities or matters unrelated to a job
[Jehn, 1995]).

Do we understand the importance of ethical technology?

Did Uber Steal Google’s Intellectual Property? | The New Yorker
"The trial itself was repeatedly delayed—once because a former Uber employee alleged, in a letter, that Uber had a clandestine unit devoted to spying on competitors, including Waymo. (After Uber agreed to pay the former employee four and a half million dollars, ostensibly for consulting services, he disavowed his claim.) "

A Hippocratic Oath for Technologists – OnMyOm: Om‘s Blog
M.K. Dale has come up with what is an “optional oath for building ethically considered experiences” that seek to address the narcotic-like challenges of modern Internet applications. It also seeks to act as a moral counterweight to an increasingly dominant technology industry.
….we move forward not just by patching holes in current technology, but by preventing these kinds of abuses from being an option in future technology…..Even with the formidable power we wield in our day-to-day lives as engineers, designers, product managers, data scientists, etc., there is very little education and oversight on ethics in our industry…..This discovery process drove me to understand better those industries which do incorporate ethical standards into their professions, and led me create a version of the physician’s Hippocratic Oath, but for technologists.
Dale’s effort is laudable and I for one support for higher standards, higher ethics and more morality in software. It might not bring the change we need, but let’s start somewhere. Read the oath, and incorporate the values into everyday work.
