Abstract

The purpose of the study is to analyze the factors which cause the deviations of e-piracy. For this, empirical data were collected by conducing a field survey with a total of 531 collegians, and a Structural Equation Model was used for the purpose of analyzing the data acquired by that. A Structural Equation Model was designed and constructed by such factors as Anonymous Environment, Norm-Consciousness, and Recognition on Penalty, which are considered as the direct variables. In addition, the factor of Anonymous Environment was set as a variable for the factors of both Norm-Consciouness and Recoginition on Penalty. These are the results of the analysis; it is found that Anonymous Environment is the direct cause of e-piracy, but the other two factors are not statistically significant. And it is also found that Anonymous Environment gives a direct influence on the other factors of Norm-Consciousness and Recognition on Penalty and it also gives indirect influence on the factor of Recognition on Penalty by means of the factor of Norm-Consciousness. Therefore, in order to prevent e-piracy, it is required to provide the proper opportunity to be trained to observe norms under the environment of anonymity. For this, diverse and effectual teaching methods for information ethic education should be sought.
