Rawlinson, David R.; Lupton, Robert A.
Journal of Education for Business, v83 n2 p87-94 Nov-Dec 2007
Students' attitudes and perceptions regarding the use of unlicensed software are important to educators and businesses. Students have a proven propensity to pirate software and other intellectual property. By understanding how attitudes and perceptions toward software piracy differ among university students in a cross-national context, educators and business leaders will be better at communicating acceptable usage polices to protect valuable intellectual property in a global information technology environment. (Contains 2 tables.)
