The impact of national culture on software piracy

Journal of Business Ethics 26 (3):197 - 211 (2000)
Abstract
This paper examines the impact of the level of economic development, income inequality, and five cultural variables on the rate of software piracy at the country level. The study finds that software piracy is significantly correlated to GNP per capita, income inequality, and individualism. Implications for anti-piracy programs and suggestions for future research are developed.
