This book explores the use of intellectual property law to combat the problems of piracy and copying in the fashion industry, a serious threat that can put small companies out of business. It provides a clear overview of legislation and helps industry professionals protect innovative designs from plagiarism in the textile and clothing industry.

An introductory guide to protecting design and innovative textiles There are a growing number of UK copyright cases reported by the fashion trade press and financial papers indicating that many companies and their advisors still do not realise the advantages of the protection available and standards applied in this field. This guide will aim to solve this problem by providing an up–to–date framework and understanding of the legal rights offered to protect the clothing and textile industry.

Questions which will be answered include:-

  • Why be concerned with design protection?
  • What do copyright, patent, trademark and design rights cover?
  • Who owns design?
  • How can a business use the law efficiently in today’s competitive environment?
  • What are the costs, time and registration procedures involved?
Complete with numerous case studies and examples, Using Design Protection in the Fashion and Textile Industry is a clear and easily accessible introduction for non–lawyers and lawyers alike.
