Stop Fashion Piracy!

NOTICE FROM THE COUNCIL OF FASHION DESIGNERS OF AMERICA

—————-

Design piracy, the blatant copying of another’s designs, is akin to counterfeiting without affixing the fake designer label. Sadly, because of a lack of adequate legal protection, design piracy has become a way of life in the fashion industry in the U.S.

Design piracy is unfair to designers and is detrimental to competition within the fashion industry. It effectively allows others to plagiarize the original designer’s creative ideas and reap the benefits of the creator’s labor and assumption of risk.

The U.S. legal system plays a key role in maintaining a fair playing field for businesses across a wide range of industries. However, the current intellectual property laws in the United States do not offer effective protections to ensure fair competition within the fashion industry.

Your voice is very important in this determining the kinds of protections our legal system offers to designers.
