module 2 case study

If the law does not keep pace with technological developments, and it always seems to be at least one step behind, the consequences can be devastating, even in the seemingly simplest of things. What could be more technologically routine these days than email? And yet……

Justin Ellsworth was a Marine who gave his life for his country. By all accounts he was a brave and fine Marine and we all owe him the highest debt of gratitude. But we were also left with a serious question, what to do with his email? His parents wanted access. They wanted to see what their son had to say. However, email is a private sort of thing. Yahoo, his email provider, had a terms of service agreement with him. And while we sympathize greatly with his parents, there is also a precedent to be concerned about. One can’t simply waive away the privacy issue as a decision to release the information could have serious consequences for email privacy for us all. So the issue needs to be discussed, thought through, and resolved. That is why we have cases like this in a class like this, so we can think these things through and try to respect the family, the deceased, and the needs of society. So I ask you:

Should Justin Ellsworth’s Parents have been given access to his email?

Case Expectations:

Please answer this question in three to five pages. Be sure to assess, separately with thorough explanations, the utilitarian and deontological considerations.

Please go to the web and to our cyberlibraries and find as much as you can on this case.

Who gets to see the e-mail of the deceased?

Abstract
Yet many legal experts say Yahoo! acted correctly. It denied the family’s informal request and only yielded under court order. “I would hope that the Yahoo! position here would become a trade practice – that e-mail would only be released if a judge approved it,” says Gerald Ferrera, executive director of the Cyberlaw Center at Bentley College in Waltham, Mass.

For Yahoo!’s part, the company says it still stands behind its commitment to treat each user’s e-mail as private and confidential. “We are pleased that the court has issued an order resolving this matter … and allowing Yahoo! to continue upholding our privacy commitment to our users,” says Yahoo! spokeswoman Mary Osako.

Most people leave their privacy in the hands of e-mail providers, rarely reading through the terms of service and privacy policy before clicking the “I agree” box. Yahoo! states that its accounts are nontransferable and that “rights to the Yahoo! I.D. and contents within the account terminate upon death.” Destroying the data once the contract ends simplifies life for Internet service providers (ISPs), says Mr. [Alan Chappell].

Since you will be working on this issue for the next four (4) SLP assignments, you do not want the issue to be too small or simple.

Try to make the size and importance of the issue just right for our purposes.

Once you have identified and explained the issue, identify one (1) business decision your company will make in regard to this issue.

Once youÂ’ve settled on an issue and business decision, you can ask your professor for some feedback before you get started on writing your paper.
