That is basicly the role of a "whistle blower."
But, do we know that the MCP was "consuming" programs that were not already Encom property? Had the MCP crossed any legal lines yet? Perhaps a this point it had only appropriated programs that were technically Encom property anyway.
I need to go back and read these two threads completely; I don't recall that being effectively argued, that the MCP had stolen anything that wasn't already Encom property.
If not, the Tron program's ethical validity would be hard to argue in the real world.
