Safe protection/safe inspiration: IP law for fashion designs – Lexology

This is one of the better overviews I have read of the current state of the art with fashion IP protection.

Given how cannibalistic design can be, it is increasingly important that designers remain as au courant with forms of intellectual protection of their work and how to best protect it.

I found the section on trade dress particularly well-written, especially in light of the recent court decisions about Christian Louboutin’s ‘red-soled shoe’ marks.  Louboutin’s legal issues with his shoes to me highlights why designers should find a lawyer they feel comfortable with and ake sure their work is adequately protected.

100 years of seeing RED-a historical perspective on the Second Circuit’s red-sole shoe mark decision in Louboutin v. Yves Saint Laurent – Lexology

Interesting review of this case in American courts. Quite different from the recent French ruling on Louboutin’s red sole trademark.
