Mark F. Schultz hat einen wissenschaftlichen Beitrag zum Thema Sozialnormen, Urheberrecht und DRM auf SSRN veröffentlicht: Copynorms: Copyright and Social Norms.
Social norms regarding the copying, distribution, and use of expressive works (copynorms) are essential to understanding how copyright law affects society. By mitigating how stringently copyright owners and users actually enforce and observe copyright law, copynorms – whether those of librarians or file sharers – moderate, extend, and undermine the effect of copyright law. Yet, scholarship and public policy debates all too often overlook this phenomenon. This paper addresses this gap in the literature.
