I’m very pleased to post Show #121, September 1, my interview with Prof. Oded Shenkar of Ohio State University’s Fisher College of Business, author of Copycats. Oded has written an outstanding book that explodes a myth often found in business literature, namely, that copying is not a successful business plan. Oded’s book challenges this assumption by examining a number of different industries to prove the assumption wrong. Highly relevant to many concerns found in intellectual property law, Oded shared his assessment about and suggestions for building a business around copying successful business models. I highly enjoyed the book and discussion, and hope you do as well.
