Fashion & IP - Key Issues & Recent Developments
The rise of ‘fashion law’ as a self-standing area of practice is arguably a recent development, also prompted by a realization of how the success of any businesses in the fashion sector depends on compliance with different laws and regulations, as well as the availability of certain types of protection and the feasibility and effectiveness of rights enforcement.
Spread over 2 sessions, this live broadcast will focus specifically on certain key IP issues as applied to the fashion sector.
The first part will consider a number of recent substantial developments in the areas of copyright, trademarks, designs and image protection. The second part will focus on enforcement aspects, notably in relation to the scope of remedies and damages and the involvement of offline and online intermediaries.
Attendees should have a basic understanding of IP law.
