Journal of Business Ethics 151 (1):1-11 (2018)

The recent case between Apple and the FBI, in which Apple refused to comply with a court order to aid the FBI in overriding the security features of an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino terrorists, brought the tension between national security and individual rights to the forefront. This article looks at the case and these two core values from a liberal communitarian ethics perspective, and provides an analysis of how these values are reflected in U.S. law. It concludes with an ethical discussion relevant to the resolution of differences between high-tech corporations and the government.
