I Don’T Care If You’Re Committed, But “We” Do: How Group Brand Connections Affect Access-Based Brand Extension Evaluations

The present paper extends prior brand extension research by exploring how evaluations differ when extension users do not own the extension. Observers with group brand connection evaluate extensions that allow users to access (vs. own) the brand based on its users’ perceived commitment, not fit with the parent brand.
