Computers and Internet have become a part of our life. Our dependence on these technologies has been continuously and rapidly increasing. Computers and Internet use also has become a necessity for instructional purposes in academic environments. Although the widespread use of computers and Internet has many benefits for almost everyone, it has also increased the use of these technologies for illegal purposes or unethical activities such as piracy and privacy invasion. Taking these issues into consideration, the main purpose of this study is to explore freshman students’ attitudes toward several issues of computer ethics. This study was conducted using a survey method and data were collected among freshman students in the Department of Business Administration at a public university in Turkey. Hypotheses were tested for investigating whether age, gender and duration of computer usage in a week have a significant impact on freshman students’ ethical judgments regarding computer and Internet usage.
