Illegal: Yes! There are multiple situations you could get into that could get you into serious trouble! Unethical: Yes If you wanna watch porn, there are MANY sites that let you watch without the need for an email or you could just make an email only for porn sites and other sites you don't want showing up on your primary email :p If you would like detailed information on how you could legally get into trouble by doing this, simply ask :)

Philipa Originally Answered: Un site internet sur le recyclage en France?
You do not mention in what language you want this information, and I assume you want it in French: Voila plusieurs sites. http://www.consoglobe.com/ac-actus-devel... http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recyclage http://www.zdnet.fr/actualites/informati... http://www.actu-environnement.com/ae/news/responsabilite_elargie_producteurs_accroissement_recyclage_6063.php4 http://www.cercle-recyclage.asso.fr/publi/dossiers/materiaux/recup05.htm http://www.actu-environnement.com/ae/news/renault_sita_vhu_recyclage_directive_4570.php4 France started re-cycling well before many other countries. For many years after WW2 bottles of beer and pop had attached stoppers and you took them back to the shop where you bought them and got some money back. When we were children we collected these from neighbours and this enabled us to use the refund for pocket money. At one time in the 1970's supermarkets actually took back empty glass bottles of wine, beer and fizzy drinks for which they gave credits against your next bill. At present the collection of domestic waste is similar to that of the UK and follows EU recommendations. The French association for recycling is called Federac. France is very keen on recycling and they tackle everything: cars, computers, phones, even planes. You can also donate unwanted items to charitable organisations such as EmmaĆ¼s , or the Secours catholique, that help people in need, not just by raising money, but setting them up with things like beds, furniture and electrical goods, and also provide them with second-hand house linen, blankets and clothing free of charge. Good luck with your essay. Bon courage pour votre dissertation. If you want more info in English a search for "Recycling in France " should give you additional material.

Whew! Good thing you cleared that up. So you're not being unethical by planning on doing this, you're merely being unethical by getting other people to do your homework. Whew! For a moment there, I was worried you might be unethical. O/o

Under UK law this would count as identity theft - a serious charge. It is most certainly unethical because you are making it appear that the account owner approves of the web-site.

Takes like 2 minutes to create a fresh email, and you're doing it without their permission, so yes it's unethical.

Jeni Originally Answered: Is it illegal for a teacher to play a video game with a student via internet?
From your brief description of what has occurred, NO, there is nothing illegal under the laws of my state (California), nor any other that I know about. But, bear in mind, the teacher is held to standards set by the local school Board of Education, or the school district for which he teaches. There may be certain guidelines that prohibit some kinds of fraternization between teacher and student outside of the school or official extracurricular activities. Since there are thousands of school districts and boards nationwide, you might have some that frown upon this type of activity. Also, bear in mind that the computer game might also be questionable. If it was objectionable because of violent or sexual content, or a gambling game, that might be grounds for a school administrator to take some action because of inappropriate content with a minor. This might also be a factor if the child is younger than teenage as well.
