Recommended Reading: FASHION LAW, A GUIDE FOR FASHION DESIGNERS, FASHION EXECUTIVES AND ATTORNEYS
Members who follow the Fashion Industry Law page (http://www.lexisnexis.com/Community/copyright-trademarklaw/landing-page.aspx?Item=301)
would be well advised to delve into this new work. FASHION LAW is a comprehensive survey of the
legal issues of the industry, covering not only US and international copyright,
trademark law and trade dress, design and utility patents and trade secrets, as
well as licensing and counterfeiting, but such non IP subjects as business
structures, commercial operating agreements, employment law issues, marketing,
advertising and promotion, retail leasing and customs issues, all with a string
industry focus and international scope.
chapters are written by experts both from law firms that serve the fashion
industry, and, refreshingly, in-house legal experts. The text flows seamlessly
from the basic to the advanced, with practical examples, forms and discussions
of important cases. It is an extraordinarily useful introduction for a lawyer,
in-house or out, new to the industry, as well as a highly useful desk reference
for more experienced lawyers.
industry is a unique alchemy of pure creativity and hard-headed commerce, truly
international, and dependent substantially on intellectual property and
contract rights-a lawyer's dream. This book does right by both to the
fascinating industry it covers and the lawyers who serve it.
