Two Papers Accepted at CIST 2016

Our paper on the impact of website blocking on the piracy will be presented at CIST 2016. In this paper we show the using DNS blocking reduces piracy but it also leads people to find new ways to circumvent blocks, such as using DNS proxies. Our other paper on the impact of information from friends and from the crowd will also be featured at CIST 2016. In this paper, we show how people combine signals from friends and from the crowd as a function of the price of the product and of how close they are to commit.
