I received an invitation from the Beverly Hills Bar Association for their upcoming Fashion Law Event titled “Dressing Up IP: Copyright, Trademark, and Licensing Issues in the Fashion Industry.” Unfortunately, I will be unable to attend as I have prior commitments that preclude attendance. But, I wanted to share the invitation with you all and encourage you all: designers, models, industry at large and fellow fashion lawyers, to check it out. The event will also be streamed live for those of you who are unable to make it.
Course Description: This program will discuss protection, monetization, and enforcement of IP in fashion design and will also review recent court decisions impacting Fashion Law. In particular, we will discuss the recent ruling in Louboutin v. YSL by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.
