Legal and Economic Aspects in Theft of Newspapers: Using a Model of Newspaper Value
AbstractThe 1990s saw increases in thefts of newspapers. In some cases, the prosecutors did not bring charges because they misunderstood the value of newspapers. This article addresses legal and economic issues surrounding theft of newspapers, and it develops a set of equations for estimating the monetary value of stolen copies. The equations can be used to determine the magnitude of loss from newspaper theft.
