I spoke on this topic at the Piracy Week event in London this past October. It was a well received presentation so I thought I would repost the whitepaper with a few updates. Deterrence theory plays a part in crime prevention, security and even dealing with teenagers ;). You can download the paper here.
Understanding how people respond to deterrents as well as the rational actor model will help develop strategies for dealing with piracy and other crimes. It should be noted that deterrence theory really goes out the window once someone is taking action for ideological purposes. (that is my disclaimer)…pic was taken from johnbsheldon.com
