Business ethics can be defined as principles of conduct within organizations that guide decision making and behavior (David and David, 2017). The law often guidesbusiness, but at other times business ethics provide a basic guideline that businesses can choose to follow to gain public approval. Some issues that come up in a discussion of ethics include corporate governance, insider trading, bribery, discrimination, social responsibility, and fiduciary responsibilities (Twin, 2020). Companies believe that to enhance attractiveness and survivability, it must gather and utilize strategic information about competitors. But how that information is obtained can raise concerns.
One ethical example that I struggled with was the first example, buying competitors garbage. I was confident that this was a legal act but unsure if it was ethical or unethical. At first, I thought that this example could be ethical. Then after reviewing other examples and the characteristics of unethical business actions, I determined this action is unethical. It is the use of the companys funds for gain. Competitive intelligence gathering is an increasingly vital tool in todays global marketplace, but pressures to gather intelligence have resulted in some unethical practices (Rittenburg, Valentine & Faircloth, 2007).

I struggled with number three taking competitors pant tours
anonymously. This type of behavior appears untrustworthy and based on
one of the Seven Principles of Admirable Business Ethics, businesses
should follow the motto, do unto others as you would have them do unto
you, (David and David, 2017). Businesses should remain abreast of
competitors progress; however, the knowledge should be researched
and presented within the scope of ethics. I choose this act as ethical
because the competitor may not have requested information such as
name and company information for tours. However, the organization
should have been transparent with its competitor before initiating the
tour.

#11 & 16

Infiltrating customers and competitors business operations. The action
that led to the infiltration must be explored before declaring the act
illegal. Illegal activities are defined in law and punishable.
