This Note aims to improve understanding of how new information and communications technologies may affect the economic system in which knowledge-based products and services are produced, packaged, distributed, and used.
This Note develops an analytic model of the behavior of producers of intellectual property (e.g. books and journals, computer software, pre-recorded videocassettes) when a technology that permits private copying is introduced.
