In this position paper we will try to take up on the discussion of ethical issues and hacking. In this work we would like to show what actually happens during hacking and how hacking relates to social responsibility, directed at the benefit of our society. This discussion is necessary for legal discourses and future ethical codices. We come to the conclusion that the discussion actually resolves to aesthetic instead of ethical questions. The latter are only an artificial addendum. However, if hacking is related to art, hackers should receive the same degrees of freedom as artists. In consequence, we would like to suggest to put the right of freedom of the arts, called Kunstfreiheit in Germanic countries, into effect for hackers too.
