by Bharat N. Anand and Tarun Khanna

Abstract

Explores issues related to (1) the vertical boundaries of the firm in an emerging-economy context, especially the effects of lack of intellectual property rights and lack of contract enforcement on both industry structure and boundaries of the firm; and (2) the extent to which strategy and organizational structure must be localized to the country context, as illustrated by considering competition between multinationals and domestic firms and the sustainability of their respective positions.

Keywords: Corporate Strategy; Multinational Firms and Management; Developing Countries and Economies; Copyright; Media and Broadcasting Industry; Entertainment and Recreation Industry;
