An Empirical Study Profiling Internet Pirates


Internet piracy has become a serious problem due to the expansion of network capacity and the availability of powerful hardware. To combat this problem, industry and law enforcement need a better understanding of the behavioral characteristics of Internet pirates. This paper describes a new conceptual framework for profiling Internet pirates. Also, it presents a taxonomy based on a survey of 114 Internet pirates. The taxonomy, which includes six types of downloaders and six types of file sharers with different behavioral characteristics, provides useful insights to forensic scientists and practitioners who are focused on combating Internet piracy.
