My only ethical consideration for magic is that it should be ethical in the same way everything else in my life is. I have no separate code of ethics for magic; if I wouldn't do it  in mundane, everyday ways, I'm not going to do it magically either.

The basis for my ethics is personal responsibility. Am I willing to take the consequences of my actions? Is the cause greater than the consequence?

I have to say, this pretty much sums up my opinion as well.  My code of ethics is a little off of what most people seem to find theirs to be--for instance, I have no problem with causing harm if I feel that I need to and am willing to accept the consequences of doing so.
