Download[/size]
Hinduja examines the social, psychological, criminological, and behavioral aspects of Internet crime. Guided by the most prominent general theories of criminal behavior, he explores music piracy – an all too-common form of cybercrime – by attempting to answer a number of questions.

Is the behavior strengthened or weakened through rewards and punishments? Hinduja then proposes a model which integrates both “social” and “technical” factors to inform and guide strategies to combat music piracy, and potentially other variants of high-tech crime.
