Sustainability of illegal practices: Downloading in France since 2009

Abstract : How and why are some illegal practices sustained? In 2008, in France, smoking in shared spaces (cafes, restaurants, stations) was made illegal. This new regulation has been quickly integrated and is today widely respected. In contrast, although downloading has been considered as an illegal practice since 2009, 49% of the French population is consuming through this way . The French legal apparatus appears to be inefficient to reduce these behaviors, even in providing a discourse on consumer’s morality or in punishing the downloaders.
