I have investigated articles from daily- and evening newspapers through a qualitative method. I have found that a big majority of the investigated articles have a normative expression. The expressions can be divided into three categories; definite, ongoing and future aiming. I have analysed my result from John Deweys theory, norms and the research project Cybernorms. My conclusion is that the normative expressions after the verdict against The Pirate Bay shows an ongoing change and this will continue concerning how copyrighted protected files on the internet should be valued.
It would be interesting to make a similar investigation when the verdict has gained legal force. To investigate if it is possible to see any change concerning the results of the normative expressions. (Less)
