In other words, how much more (or less) money does your company make due to branding. Your business needs to determine not only how to define brand value for the company itself, but also how to measure it.

There's nothing wrong with copying what you like. You've probably heard the Oscar Wilde quote of, "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery." If you see something that works in the world of business, replicate it.
