This article expands the understanding of a kind of white-collar delinquency: youthful violations of patents and copyrights through the copying of audio- and videotapes and computer software. Class and gender variations in these kinds of activities are considered using a power-control perspective that focuses on parental controls and attitudes toward risk-taking. A power-control perspective treats childhood and adolescent socialization as a systemic process of social reproduction that links the family and work spheres, with implications for the understanding of “pink” as well as white-collar crimes.
