2B Product Line Extensions Hurts the Brand Owners: Psychological Ownership As a Mediator

Our studies show that owners and non-owners react differently towards product extensions: brand’s upward line extensions negatively affect owners’ preference for the brand by reducing owners' psychological ownership of the brand.
