    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Vad är det med upphovsrätten som inte fungerar i det digitala samhället? Vad är det som gör att miljoner människor just i fallet med fildelning tycker att det är okej att bryta mot lagen? Och, sett från det omvända perspektivet, vad är det som gör att lagen inte klarar av att anpassa sig efter de nya digitala praktikerna? Varför denna inlåsning och detta tillbakablickande? Det här är en sammanläggningsavhandling i rättssociologi som - via fyra artiklar och en kappa - dels visar hur upphovsrätten förstärks och breddas när den möter den digitala utmaningen, och dels visar hur de sociala normerna är exceptionellt svaga på just det här området. En delstudie rör exempelvis de sociala normerna innan och efter IPRED infördes i Sverige. READ MORE
