Media Piracy in Emerging Economies

Joe Karaganis, Social Science Research Council

Tuesday, February 2, 12:30 pm
Berkman Center, 23 Everett Street, second floor
RSVP required for those attending in person (rsvp@cyber.law.harvard.edu)
This event will be webcast live at 12:30 pm ET and archived on our site shortly after.

Joe Karaganis will discuss findings from a forthcoming six-country study of media piracy, including work on Russia, India, Brazil, Mexico, and South Africa.  The study provides a rare empirical look at the organization of piracy and enforcement in developing countries, and explores the transformation of both as the optical disk economy give way to digital distribution.
