"[W]e have zero fundamental ethical obligations to corporations."
Don't you think we should respect their tangible property? If ABC, Inc. owns a laptop, I think it'd be pretty unethical to smash it to pieces.
That said, Fried seems to be half a step away from imply that we, as individuals, aren't entitled to any more ethics or respect than what we accord to corporations.
And that's bullshit, but I wouldn't be surprised if some folks subscribe to that theory. It sounds a lot like the rationale behind Sony's rootkit.
