  <dc:description>In business information systems, many of the questions of both ethics and business benefit can be usefully considered in terms of levels and type of open-ness to be applied. In this paper, I examine both the ethical implications of such choices, but also the business benefits to be gained, from choosing a more open path. software licensing issues, communication protocols, data formats and customer relations are all considered through this lens. This record was migrated from the OpenDepot repository service in June, 2017 before shutting down.</dc:description>
