Sammanfattning

This paper investigates if economic theory can explain variations in piracy behavior between individuals and between countries. It is demonstrated that economic theory explains a notable part of the individual variation in a survey study. Individuals with a low net valuation of an original when a copy is available are more prone to engage in piracy than individuals with a higher valuation. Individuals with a low cost of obtaining and handling copies are also
more engaged in piracy. The country-wise variation can also be explained by economic variables; GNI/capita and judicial eciency explain a substantial part of this variation.
