Abstract

“While the intention and participation in media and software piracy have been widely investigated, little is known concerning the determinants associated with electronic book piracy. With the adoption of e-book reader devices, Internet piracy remains a global concern that impacts multiple stakeholders, including authors, publishers, and libraries. The current study aims to examine the factors associated with electronic book piracy among college students. Results indicate that peer association and perceived risk are significantly linked to one’s participation in e-book piracy. However, techniques of neutralization are not statistically significant. Libraries and publishers must educate students and raise awareness about the potential outcomes and risks related to e-book piracy.”

Main Results of the Study

Students are more likely to engage in eBook piracy where they associate with peers that also engage in eBook piracy. 25% of the students surveyed engaged in copyright infringement of eBook content, with half of their peers also engaged in similar behaviours. This likelihood increases where the number of piratical peers, including virtual peers, is higher.

The perceived risk of punishment is also associated with the likelihood to engage in eBook piracy; where perceived risk is low (with 60% of surveyed students believing they would not be punished for eBook piracy), likelihood of infringing increases.

The study did not confirm any association between neutralisation techniques (e.g. beliefs held by infringers to justify their behaviours and remove feelings of guilt or shame) and increased piratical behaviours.

Policy Implications as Stated By Author

The study encourages universities to develop programmes to educate students on the legal consequences of infringement, and to encourage conformity to the rules rather than conformity with peers. The study also suggests that warnings of legal sanctions may have deterrent effects on infringement, particularly if the perceived risks of infringement outweigh the perceived benefits.
