Research Seminar with Gerald E. Fryxell

Do not put your Trust? Anti-Piracy Effectiveness and Managerial Confidence: Insights from Multinationals in China.

Mandag, 16 oktober, 2006 - 12:30 to 14:00

Research seminar by our visitor Gerald E. Fryxell from CEIBS Shanghai.

This research seminar examines the perceptions of the multinationals on the effectiveness of anti-piracy strategies and the interactions of managerial confidence in the interlectual property rights (IP) regime in China on such effectiveness. The authors propose an anti-piracy model. Empirically, with data from 128 multinationals, the preliminary test demonstrates that anti-piracy strategies have a powerful effect on curtailing piracy explaining 58% of the variations in the anti-piracy success. The level of managers’ confidence in the intellectual property regime in China strongly impacts on the relationship with anti-piracy strategies.
