Is there a definition?

China's gone beyond the bounds of acceptable behaviour in its online espionage efforts.

What are "the bounds of acceptable behavior" in spying and espionage? And what gives us the right to take the high ground when if there's a chance, we'd do the same thing to them? And by "us" I'm including all the "5-Eyes".

I hate to tell our politicians this, but it's a brave new world out there on the internet and if one side hasn't been playing nice, there's no reason to expect anyone else to play nice... reaping what you sow and all that.
