Bill Gates was the great advocate for PAYING for computer programs and programming. It really frosted his balls to see people freely exchanging their software creations. He argued that if the stuff wasn't protected and PAID for ... development would suffer.
Was Microsoft true to Bill's heartfelt convictions? No. They stole anything and everything they possibly could. Bill once told a friend that if she had a good idea she better not tell him because once he knew about that idea, he would be COMPELLED by his conscience ... to steal it and use it!
Ethics to corporations ... is simply what they can get written into law and get enforced by law.
