Submission + - Survey: IT pros cheating more, tattling more (networkworld.com) 1

Julie188 writes: Incidents of cheating on IT certifications are on the rise, a trend that experts say is an outward sign of the desperation felt by out-of-work and under-employed IT professionals. In a survey of 200 IT professionals on IT Ethics conducted by Network World, 58% said they felt that using "braindump" training materials was unethical yet 72% of respondents think that IT professionals use braindump materials on a regular-to-frequent basis. And 12% have directly witnessed someone cheating on a certification exam. Also interestingly: the survey reports that cheating on software licenses is equally rampant. But whistleblowing by IT pros on their company's license abuses is also on the rise. IT pros are getting fed up with being forced to violate licenses (and their own ethics) by business managers.
