Sprigman is interviewed by U.K.-based Anna Farmery, the host of business ideas show “The Engaging Brand.” A fun interview — take a listen.
Hearsay Culture’s Dave Levine does a program on The Knockoff Economy. Sprigman is interviewed.
Josh Block of Bloomberg Law has just released a second video based on his interview with me (Sprigman). In this installment, Josh asks me about the changes that I’d like to see in copyright and patent law.

ABC News does a story on The Knockoff Economy, covering the book’s ideas on tech, fashion, and comedy. And implicitly — judging from the picture they ran at left — toys.
Chris does an interview on Microsoft’s “TAP” blog, which is dedicated to public discussion of law and technology issues. A good overview of the book.
Kal is interviewed for the “All Tech Considered” segment — in which he and reporter Laura Sydell compare the patent-heavy market in smartphones with the relatively patent- and copyright-free world of fashion. The winner? Fashion.
