You work for an auto manufacturer and distributor. How could you use information systems to achieve greater customer intimacy?

What do you consider to be the primary ethical, social, and political issues regarding information system quality? Privacy, Accuracy, Property & Accessibility. 32. How do you think our government should handle the political issue of Internet decency and access limitations?
In my opinion, the Internet is way too extensive to try and manage or regulate. There are always going to be ways to share copyright information and breach access limitations. The Internet has definitely gotten way out of hand when it comes to music videos, music, software, ect. I think they should just stop trying to limit the users because they will find one way or another to share new material. 33. What are the functions of management? Briefly Explain
