The question of ethics is always a question. This is true whether you are speaking about personal or corporate ethics. But why am I talking to you about crowdsourcing ethics? I previously explained that crowdsourcing is not an industry but a work process?

So how can we talk about ethics when it comes to a work process?

Well, the truth is that Ross Dawson is not referring to the ethics of a work process but to the people doing the work. One of the main points of contention is to pay or not to pay. Dawson does a very nice job discussing this topic as well as a few others.

So let me know your thoughts on the ethics of crowdsourcing.
