Summary/Abstract: When computers first appeared, which were stored in large rooms and weighted several tons, few could have guessed that they would one day become a part of everyday life in modern societies. With the advent of the World Wide Web and e-mail, Internet made a revolution in all spheres of life. This inexhaustible source of information is spread at tremendous speed. The world is just "a click" away fromus. Despite the fact that computer networks are the social phenomenon of IT, we must bear in mind theirimportant sociological, and therefore ethical and moral dimension, i.e. monitoring and examining theirpositive/negative effect. At the end of the last decade of the twenty-first century, people realized that privacy, freedom of research and copyrights - are basic, angular contents, but the social problems, conflicts, rules of behavior and technology, also.
