The knockoff economy: how imitation sparks innovation.

This book approaches the question of incentives and innovation in a wholly new way--by exploring creative fields that do not rely on legal monopolies, such as fashion, cuisine, and even professional football. By uncovering these important but rarely studied creative worlds, the authors reveal a nuanced and fascinating relationship between imitation and innovation.
