1.Golden Rule
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you
EXAMPLE: If you are using a pirated software then think being in shoes of a person who has developed that software. All of his hard work is going in vein and he is getting nothing from you. 2.Immanuel Kant’s Categorical Imperative

If an action is not right for everyone to take, it is not right for anyone EXAMPLE: While using pirated software if you think that it doesn’t make any difference to developer’s income but, you think that if everyone started using pirated software then developer will get nothing from his software and then no one will develop any software because there is no income from that, which ultimately hurts the world as a whole. 3.Descartes’ Rule of Change

If an action cannot be taken repeatedly, it is not right to take at all EXAMPLE: If you are downloading songs from unauthorized sites for free and you think that let me do it once next time I will download it from authorized sites. Thus you think that doing this repeatedly is unethical then doing it once is also unethical. 4.Utilitarian Principle

Take the action that achieves the higher or greater value

5.Risk Aversion Principle
Take the action that produces the least harm or least potential cost EXAMPLE:

6.Ethical “no free lunch” Rule
Assume that virtually all tangible and intangible objects are owned by someone unless there is a specific declaration otherwise
