I work at a small organization (5 full-time staff members) that is part of a larger company. We work pretty independently as a 5-person unit. We often have needs that require we use Amazon, so our organization has purchased a general subscription to Amazon Prime so that our items come quickly and usually with free shipping. We are never allowed (or tempted!) to use this account for our personal shipping needs.

That being said, Prime comes with access to many free videos. Recently we debated whether or not it was ethical for a staff member to log into the Prime account from home in order to watch any of the “free” movies. Some of us thought this was harmless, as it doesn’t cost any additional money, while others felt it was stealing. I’d love to hear you weigh in!
