Fashion Extraction: Distilling Fashion Law to its Interdisciplinary Core

nullThe fashion industry’s continued dominance in the commercial marketplace coupled with its successful expansion into the exploitation of social media and other digital platforms has presented the industry with an ever expanding myriad of complex business and legal issues to address. For stakeholders in the space, navigating an evolving landscape of shifting laws, rules and regulations governing everything from state-specific labeling requirements for textiles to social media platform-specific terms for advertising has proven daunting, but an essential exercise for leveraging the economic opportunities available. In an industry as varied as the products and services it produces, the practice of fashion law is no less diverse-crossing and converging multiple areas of law into a cross-section of disciplines-requiring practitioners understand the core legal issues and common business arrangements that prevail today. In this webinar, the DigitalHHR team explores the critical business and legal challenges associated with the creation, licensing, manufacturing, distribution, sale and protection of fashion, apparel and related goods and services. We discuss the contours of licensing and distribution agreements, manufacturing, supply chain management and other labor and consumer product compliance, as well as the legal aspects of brand exploitation, advertising and promotion across new media platforms. We also analyze the evolving nature of intellectual property protection as it relates to fashion and apparel, and the corresponding laws, regulations and case law impacting same, including proposed legislation such as the Innovative Design Protection and Piracy Prevention Act (IDPPPA).
