Reminder: Chat With Chris Sprigman And Kal Raustiala Tomorrow About The Knockoff Economy

from the imitation-breeds-innovation dept

Just a quick reminder that tomorrow at 11am PT / 2pm ET, we'll be doing a live stream Google Hangout in which I talk to Kal Raustiala and Chris Sprigman, authors of The Knockoff Economy: How Imitation Sparks Innovation. It should run for about half an hour. If you haven't yet read the book, you should. Either way, we've run excerpts on the importance of those who "tweak" the work of others, and on what the music industry can do, based on lessons from other industries or professions that don't have monopoly restrictions on competition. I imagine that tomorrow will be a very interesting conversation all around. If you have specific questions, please feel free to submit them below, and we'll see what we can get to. Also, don't forget this month's book club book, Hacking the Future. We'll be running another excerpt next week...

    the discussion may be all the more relevant now that Senator Schumer wants to get copyright protection on to fashion again!
