Write at least 250 words.
After entering the cyber era, it is common to share information in every aspect interpersonally and internationally. Some hold the view that it is extremely good to share information while others cannot agree with it. From my perspective, it is apparently beneficial but some information should not be shared freely.
Indeed, information sharing in scientific research, business and academic world is clearly helpful to achieve development of every country. For one, it does provide considerable opportunities to boost international and local economy by summits and forums. Summer Davos Forum is a good case that all the participants could exchange information to get inspired, which extremely contributes to the global economic progress. For another, some medical events need huge information from every country to overcome, especially in some less developed regions such as Africa and Asia.
Unfortunately, sharing valuable information is not always beneficial to every country. First and foremost, some advanced technology is time-consuming, and it is unfair for the inventors to share the key information to the public. As writers would never give up their copyrights without being paid, at least scientists should not offer the information freely. Besides, some information especially related to military secret or commercial secret should be protected carefully, otherwise it would become a terrible trouble when governments need to fight with social evils or terrorists thanks to information sharing. To some extent, it is not wise to spread the information all over the world.
In fact, it is undeniable that sharing information could help to develop economy and business and promote academic cooperation, but it is too unfair and risky to exchange the details in every professional area.
