Abstract

This research examines the relationship between culture and piracy of intellectual property as captured by software piracy. Culture is measured by the four variables of educational expenditures, individualism, religion, and language. The empirical analysis is carried out using stepwise regression based on data from 76 countries. Per capita gross domestic production for each country is used as a control variable in the regressions. It is found that the variables measuring culture have explained 76 percent of the variation in software piracy
