L'impact du piratage sur l'achat et le téléchargement légal. Une comparaison de quatre filières culturelles

Revue économique, 2014, vol. 65, issue 3, 573-600
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
