High prices for media goods, low incomes, and cheap
digital technologies are the main ingredients of global media piracy.
That’s the framework for Karaganis’ talk about the shifting boundary
between licit and illicit access to media goods and the prospects for
enforcement in the wake of SOPA. He’ll draw on two recent studies,
‘Media Piracy in Emerging Economies’ and ‘Copy Culture in the US and
Germany,’ and preview an upcoming one on access to educational
materials in universities.
