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.
