Since he is renting a DVR, he is paying Comcast additional money to be able to record shows as well. The only issue is space - that's why he is copying it over. As long as you watch and purge (and don't share) the recording I see no issue with it.

Here's one. A couple years ago I saw a group of young teens pass by a bodega. One of the bodegas with the bins of fruit outside the store. The store owner was inside stocking a shelf, maybe 10 feet from me. As the teens passed, I noticed one teen swiped a mango, and put it under his shirt while the other boys giggled.

I could have said something to the teens, and I could have said something to the owner. I didn't... I figured it was none of my business, especially for such a low ticket item as a mango.

Unethical to mind my own business?

Maybe. The ethical move would probably have been to tell the store owner that the kids had swiped some of his fruit. Then it's up to him if he wants to try to recover the fruit. Of course if he calls the cops then he'll probably want to you hang around and then you end up in the middle of this schmozzle all because of a little mango.

I would have done as you did, it's not like these kids were breaking into a house or stealing a car.

Do situational ethics apply? What if, instead of kids stealing a mango it was a businessman in suit and tie?

What if you knew the teens were broke, homeless, hungry and supporting 3 little brothers and sisters? (Think the movie "Aladdin".)

Is there a difference?

Get to the motel room and your hooker is already dead. What do you do?

Ok, if there are no sirens yet and services have been paid for. You can either complete said service or obtain a refund, I don't think she would object to the refund.

Correct...it is unethical to bang a dead person even if it is just a hooker.
