Battle of the Bells


Schulmerich Bells and Malmark, Inc. are the two largest handbell companies in the world and are located just down the street from one other. However, while handbells often conjure up images of harmony and goodwill (especially around Christmas time -- e.g., "Carol of the Bells"), until recently these two companies were at logger heads with one another, routinely suing one another for real or perceived infractions. Luckily, there's a happy ending to this story, and on a recent Planet Money podcast ("Bell Wars") you can hear (learn) all about it.
