Sammanfattning

This study investigates and explores the antecedents of digital piracy behaviour of young individuals, which is an unlawful activity. The study is based on a mixed-method approach. Study 1 is a quantitative one and is focused on 100 university lecturers/senior lecturers, while study 2 is a qualitative one based on ten mature university postgraduate students. The findings of study 1 show that peer influence impacts on the decision to illegally download and that companies will lose a lot when people download illegally. Moreover, lecturers/senior lecturers would expect to receive punishment, i.e., a fine, caution, internet ban, and a warning from affected companies. The findings of study 2 show that different moral views, social influences, and legislation affect attitudes related to digital piracy. Factors such as legislation, safety risk, the availability of copied material, the package offered, and the convenience of internet users had moderating effects between antecedents and digital piracy.
