Here's a short interview with Kal Raustiala, co-author of a very interesting new book called 'The Knockoff Economy: How Imitation Sparks Innovation'. Raustiala discusses how copyright is unnecessary in various creative industries. For instance, an absence of copyright protection encourages innovation in fashion, football, and cuisine. He also touches upon the (lack of) innovation in the music industry and the (lack of) use for patents in certain industries (paraphrased: "It's not reasonable for Apple to patent the rectangle").

The Knockoff Economy: How Copying Benefits Everyone (9min)




I'm reading the book and liking it very much so far. Here's a short review.
