Abstract

This study examined computer ethical perceptions and computer use attitudes (operationalized as computer aversion) among subjects from the United States, Singapore and Hong Kong. The purpose of the study was to determine if computer attitudes have a moderating effect on the perceptions of computer ethical use across multiple cultural backgrounds. This study found support for the interaction between nationality/culture and computer aversion, as well as indications that nationality/culture and computer attitudes affect computer-use ethics.
