Ethics and law.

I am reading a piece that divides Deontological ethics out as European and Consequential as American. That seems too simple but the writer then examines intellectual property and also privacy with these views. This was an article sent to me by Charles Ess after I asked him about research ethics and the differences between world privacy laws and their effects on research ethics. I am wondering if a better paper is possible with less of a simplistic view. I have just started to read it and found it on the Internet using google scholar. I am also reading a piece published by my employer Statistics Canada on the social impact of information and communications technologies.
