Description:
Media Piracy in Emerging Economies is the first independent, large-scale study of music, film and software piracy in emerging economies, with a focus on Brazil, India, Russia, South Africa, Mexico and Bolivia. The report argues that the problem of piracy is better conceived as a failure of affordable access to media in legal markets.
