" Catch me if you can " : Illegal downloading in France since 2009

Abstract : How are some illegal practices sustained? Although prior research has been focusing on the domestication or integration of illegal practices by the market, little attention has been paid to their sustainability. We propose to study, through the case of illegal downloading in France since 2009, 1° How consumers get organized after the enactment of a new regulation 2° How these practices could form a parallel system of supply and demand chain. The main results show that consumers pay for illegal content and to be " protected ". Moreover, downloaders are certain that even their favorite platform shut down they will be able to find alternatives. This research's intended contribution to the literature on illegal practices as well as market system dynamics will be discussed.
