Dragging this back on-topic, you bring up an interesting example.
Creating an ethic such as "information should be free", and then
following it to the letter, isn't always the most positive course of
action. Like giving someone a Christmas present, but telling them what
it is before they unwrap ;-)

But ethics are easier to follow than  thoughtfully considering each
circumstance individually, which is my main beef with the arguments
way above.
