Others think that computers must be harnessed to help restore as much privacy as possible to our society. Although they may not like it, computer professionals are at the center of this controversy. Some are designers of the systems that facilitate information gathering and manipulation; others maintain and protect the information. As the saying goes, information is power — but power can be used or abused. Computer technology creates wide-ranging possibilities for tracking and monitoring of human behavior.

An issue that has received a great deal of legal and public attention is the ownership of software. In the course of history, software is a relatively new entity. Whereas Western legal systems have developed property laws that encourage invention by granting certain rights to inventors, there are provisions against ownership of things that might interfere with the development of the technological arts and sciences. For this reason, copyrights protect only the expression of ideas, not the ideas themselves, and we do not grant patents on laws of nature, mathematical formulas, and abstract ideas.
