By Rodolphe Durand on ParisTech Review

The furor over the WikiLeaks affair graced headlines of newspapers across the globe and illuminated the nebulous world of hackers and internet pirates. Questions have been raised over the unseen threads that connect actors on both sides of the law. What links do they have with states and large corporations? Are they completely outside the capitalist system? Piracy has a storied history with lessons for the current situation that Rodolphe Durand, Professor of strategy at HEC and co-author of The Pirate Organization (Harvard Business Press, 2012), recently discussed.
L'affaire Wikileaks a fait la Une des journaux de la planète, attirant l'attention sur la nébuleuse mal connue des hackers et autres pirates du Web. Criminels ou justiciers, quels rapports entretiennent-ils avec les États et les grandes corporations ? Sont-ils hors système ou participent-ils à leur façon à la dynamique du capitalisme ? L'histoire de la piraterie permet de remettre en perspective les enjeux d'aujourd'hui. Le point avec Rodolphe Durand, professeur de stratégie à HEC Paris et coauteur de "L'Organisation pirate" (Le bord de l'eau, 2010).
