Piracy

langelgjm writes “The Social Science Research Council, an independent, non-profit organization, today released a major report on music, film and software piracy in developing economies. It’s a product of three years of work, and the authors conclude that piracy is primarily driven by excessively high prices and that anti-piracy education and enforcement efforts have failed. Still, chief editor Joe Karaganis believes that businesses can survive in these high piracy environments. The report is free to readers in low-income countries, but behind a paywall for certain high-income countries, although the SSRC notes, ‘For those who must have it for free anyway, you probably know where to look.’”
