The 8 Most Valuable Luxury Brands In The World – Business Insider.
Louis Vuitton is by far the most valuable luxury brand in the world, worth $23.577 billion—a 2 percent increase from last year’s value—according to a new survey from brand consulting firm Interbrand.
It was a good year for the luxury conglomerate. The company improved its digital experience and launched several apps, entered the fragrance market for the first time, and remained a blockbuster brand in China.
It even got Michael Phelps to star in a steamy ad campaign.
In addition to Louis Vuitton, seven other luxury brands made it onto Interbrand’s annual list of the world’s most valuable brands. Most experienced major growth, and there were two newcomers to the list.
Interbrand takes into account brands’ financial performance, role in influencing customer choice, and ability to command premium prices.

If you think that identity theft is the worst-case-scenario of Internet use, you clearly don’t live in any of the nations that make the list of top “Enemies of the Internet.” Not only do these governments monitor their citizens’ web activity, but they also make it nearly impossible for them to safely share and gather information through anonymous microblogs, Facebook pages or Twitter accounts. One nation sports a cyber police force that is larger than the city of Orlando, Florida. And when protests erupted in another country, Twitter accounts were created for the sole purpose of diverting citizens from spreading information. Although these nations represent the extremes of national cybersecurity, the measures they use are based in legislative bills like SOPA, PIPA and CISPA. Check out the following infographic to find out which nations make this list. The next time you surf the web, think carefully about who’s watching you and who’s blocking you.

The study was conducted on 2,000 British adults in a four-person family.
