Abstract: Using a survey on cultural habits and consumption behavior of 2,000 individuals, we study the determinants of physical purchases and pay-downloads in four cultural industries: books, recorded music, movies, and video games. We show that the impact of piracy on legal purchases differs among these industries: it is negative for recorded music, but positive for video games. This impact also differs among individuals, when we distinguish occasional pirates from intensive ones. Our results suggest that piracy and pay-downloads are complements rather than substitutes for recorded music, video games and books. Classification JEL?: K42, L82, O34, Z10
