What Do We Know about Digital Piracy? A Bibliometric Analysis

Muhammad Azwar Massijaya, Rosmah Mohamed, Anuar Shah Bali Mahomed


Digital piracy has been a severe problem for many years. For decades, many studies have tried to identify the reasons and solutions for how digital piracy should be handled. This study provides a deeper picture of digital piracy literature through bibliometric analysis and proposes directions for future research. By retrieving data from 1,359 published articles from a database of WoS, the study conducted citation, co-citation, and bibliometric coupling analysis to view the intellectual structure of the digital piracy literature. The analysis identified software piracy as the most popular theme in digital piracy literature, opening up research opportunities for future research. The theory of planned behavior, deterrence theory, and the general theory of crime are three theories that are frequently used as underpinning theories for studying digital piracy. The results also indicated that religiosity, gender differences, and price issues are trending themes for upcoming research. This research provides intellectual structure of digital piracy literature and is intended as guidance for future research. This research is the first research that offers a comprehensive study exploring digital piracy literature through bibliometric study.


Keywords: digital piracy, movie piracy, software piracy, music piracy, bibliometric analysis.
