Answer by Joy
1) Legally, any licensed software you own can be hosted on the clould.
2) Ethically, one issue I have heard about involves using labor from low-cost countries to do repetitive accounting tasks via having it done by your own staff where you are located.
3) Environmentally speaking, if you end up storing your documents as data images online instead of copying them, you are using less paper. The part I can’t measure is if you are consuming more electricity as a result.
