Free MCLE March 21 – Copyright in Fashion

Wednesday, March 21, 2018, Noon to 1:00pm
Copyrights in the Fashion Business . . . It All Depends

Presented by Anne Kearns, Esq.
Anne Kearns Law

1 Hour free MCLE 

What is copyrightable in fashion is confusing. Pants and shirts are not copyrightable, but certain features, like the print on fabric might be. Watches aren’t copyrightable, but jewelry is.  Costumes aren’t copyrightable, but masks are. The distinction is often blurred, and lawyers often get creative with how they argue copyrightability. This presentation addresses copyright protection in fashion and the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision, Star Athletica, L.L.C. v. Varsity Brands, Inc., 137 S. Ct. 1002 (2017) which took this issue head on. There will be discussion about other pending cases and how far copyrightabilty in fashion can be stretched.

Michael Hackard draws from four decades of legal experience to advise professionals what elder financial abuse is, how to identify it, and—most importantly—what to do if abuse is suspected.
