Parents spy, lovers spy, corporate boards spy, and the federal government spies. The law limits the right to spy, but allows more than it prohibits. When is it ethical to secretly monitor other people? Is it permissible to spy in the name of fighting anti-terrorism? Sealing corporate leaks? Keeping track of a spouse? Looking out for your children? Against the background of current events and real-life examples Anita Allen-Castellitto (Law and Philosophy, University of Pennsylvania) argues that context is everything when it comes to the ethics of spying on others--a one-size-fits-all moral rule is not plausible.
