As a result of technological changes, copyright norms have developed in opposition to existing copyright law. In this article we examine how copyright enforcement efforts, mainly lawsuits against private copying, may induce further copyright disobedience by reinforcing the moral and social beliefs against conventional copyright law. In this paper we review recent theoretical and empirical studies and assess the hypothesis of countervailing copyright norm effects from copyright enforcement.
