Fashion law encompasses a wide variety of issues that concern an article of clothing or a fashion accessory, starting from the moment they are designed and following them through distribution and marketing phases, all the way until they reach the end-user. Contract law, intellectual property, company law, tax law, international trade, and customs law are of fundamental importance in defining this new field of law that is gradually taking shape. This volume focuses on the new frontiers of fashion law, taking into account the various fields that have recently emerged as being of great interest for the entire fashion world: from sustainable fashion to wearable technologies, from new remedies to cultural appropriation to the regulation of model weight, from advertising law on the digital market to the impact of new technologies on product distribution. The purpose is to stimulate discussion on contemporary problems that have the potential to define new boundaries of fashion law, such as the impact of the heightened ethical sensitivity of consumers (who increasingly require effective solutions), that a comparative law perspective renders more interesting. The volume seeks to sketch out the new legal fields in which the fashion industry is getting involved, identifying the new boundaries of fashion law that existing literature has not dealt with in a comprehensive manner.

Artificial intelligence (AI) now infiltrates our culture. After a couple of difficult winters, AI today is a word on everybody’s lips, and it attracts everyone’s attention regardless of whether they are experts or not. From Apple’s Siri to Amazon’s Alexa, Tesla’s auto-driving cars to facial recognition systems in CCTV cameras, Netflix’s film offering services to Google’s search engine, we live in a world of AI goods. The advent of AI-powered technologies increasingly affects people’s lives across the globe. As a tool for productivity and cost-efficiency, AI also shapes our economy and welfare. AI-generated designs and works are becoming more popular. Today, AI technologies can generate several intellectual creations. Fashion is one of the industries that AI can profoundly impact. AI tools and devices are currently being used in the fashion industry to create fashion models, fabric and jewellery designs, and clothing. When we talk about AI-generated designs, we instead focus on the fruits of innovation – more best-selling apparels, more fashionable designs and more fulfilment of customer expectations – without paying heed to who the designer is. Designers invest a lot of talent, time and finances into designing and creating each article of clothing and accessory before they release their work to the public. Pattern drafting is the first and most important step in dressmaking. Designers typically start with a general sketch on paper; add styles, elements and colours; revise and refine everything; and finally deliver their design to dressmakers. AI accelerates this time-consuming and labour-intensive process. Yet the full legal consequences of AI in fashion industry are often forgotten. An AI device’s ability to generate fashion designs raises the question of who will own intellectual property rights over the fashion designs. Will it be the fashion designer who hires or contracts with the AI programmer? Will it be the programmer? Will it be the AI itself? Or will it be a joint work of humans and computers? And who will be liable for infringement deriving from use of third-party material in AI-generated fashion designs? This book explores answers to these questions within the framework of EU design and copyright laws. It also crafts a solution proposal based on a three-step test and model norms, which could be used to unleash the authors, rights holders and infringers around AI-generated fashion designs.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus pandemic has halted the global economy and forced its reorganization on many levels. This phenomenon caused a shock, the effects of which will be felt for a long time both on the micro and macro scale. Creative industries, including the fashion and design industries (Textile, Clothing, Leather, and Footwear, TCLF) that are the subject of this publication, are struggling to maintain normal levels of production, employment, financial liquidity. They must additionally confront new challenges in the areas of intellectual property rights and their approach to the e-commerce world. Businesses found themselves faced with an uncertain future and new obstacles, but also with opportunities. These challenges now affect the traditionally fastpaced fashion sector, which has been driven for many years by consumers’ desire for ever more design and by the industry’s own thirst for profit. In the Polish perspective, it should also be borne in mind that, according to the report of PKO Bank Polski in 2019, the clothing industry in Poland showed an upward trend, ranking the country in 8th place in Europe by size of the clothing sector in 2017. As for the entrepreneurs making clothing, in 2017 there were 12,700 of them, placing Poland third in Europe. Finally, for employment, in the same year in Poland, 85,000 were employed in the clothing sector, which was the 5th place in the European ranking. These statistics clearly demonstrate why this sector requires closer analysis in these changed times, including a refreshed SWOT analysis taking account of the new reality. Given this situation, the Center for Design, Fashion and Advertising Law of the University of Silesia initiated research to determine how the clothing sector in Poland is coping and how the legal environment interacts with the Covid challenges. Thanks to a joint effort of scientists and legal practitioners, this publication was created consisting of 39 chapters grouped into the following 12 parts: Social and legal context, International and regulatory context, Product safety, Contracts, Copyright law, Design law and trademark law, Technology law, Unfair competition law, Labour law, Fine arts market, Sustainable Development, E-commerce. The editors would like to thank all of the authors for their efforts examining the development trends in the TCLF sector and for contributing the immeasurable amounts of energy and understanding that allowed us to complete this project. This book is the result of the authors’ significant commitment. Editors would like to give special thanks to Śląski Holding Przemysłowy that shared the company’s expertise about their two large industrial production plants employing over 500 employees, which kept working in a continuous operation system, without a single case of infection by COVID-19. We are grateful to the institutions that undertook honorary patronage of our initiative. Words of thanks go also to the strategic, content and media partners. The premiere of the publication will take place in conjunction with a music premiere, details of which can be found on the cover.

Is it ever appropriate to “borrow” culturally inspired ideas? Who has ownership over intangible culture? What role does power inequality play? These questions are often at the center of heated public debates around cultural appropriation, with new controversies breaking seemingly every day. Cultural Appropriation in Fashion and Entertainment offers a sociological perspective on the debate, exploring appropriation of cultures embedded in race, ethnicity, class, sexuality, and religion in entertainment as well as the clothing, textiles, jewelry, accessories, hairstyles, and tattoos we wear. Case studies are drawn from K-pop, Bollywood dance, J-pop, Bhangra music, Jamaican reggae, hip hop and EDM fashion to explore how, when, and why cultural borrowing or appreciation can become cultural appropriation. There's also discussion of subcultural territories that extend beyond geography, race and ethnicity, such as cosplay and LGBTQI+ communities. By providing a range of global perspectives on the adoption, adaptation, and application of both tangible and intangible cultural objects, Kawamura and de Jong help move the conversation beyond simply criticizing designers and creators to encourage nuanced discussion and raise awareness of diverse cultures in the creative industries.

The fashion industry is a multibillion-dollar global industry with a variety of organizational structures and a multitude of challenges. Such scope triggered the recent rise in management programs in the U.S. and Europe aiming to produce and train young managers to meet such global and diverse challenges.

Its goal is to tackle the topics from a fashion manager perspective referencing relevant management concepts and theories, thus offering a deeper and more practical dimension to the issues addressed. It offers a balanced mix of fashion and management, theory and application, as well as creating an opportunity for analysis and critical thinking.

It is an opportunity to expose the fashion student or reader, as well as aspiring fashion managers, to a more practical approach to fashion theories and issues.

This book explores the contributory liability of Internet intermediaries that arises from trademark infringements committed by third parties on the Internet, providing a comprehensive analysis of the law applicable to the matter in an EU context. It also considers the applicable laws of Germany and England to demonstrate how the rules are implemented in national laws, as the current state of the law is two-tiered. In providing a framework of the law applicable to online contributory trademark liability, the book also addresses ongoing and emerging issues that are specific to trademark law and proposes specific solutions to the issues arising in the context of online contributory trademark liability. The liability of Internet intermediaries has been a popular and lively subject from different substantive rights’ angles. However, trademark law has not received a great deal of attention from either scholars or legislators. As such, this book fills a gap in the literature by undertaking a trademark-specific examination, and will be of great interest to all those involved in the research and legal practice of trademark law.

The UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions (CDCE) was adopted in 2005 and designed to allow States to protect and promote cultural policies. This book examines the effectiveness of the CDCE and offers ways by which its implementation may be improved to better attain its objectives. The book provides insight in how the normative character of the CDCE may be strengthened through implementation and increasingly recurrent practice based on its provisions. Hailing from various fields of international law, political and social sciences, the book’s contributors work to promote discussions on the practical and legal influence of the CDCE, and to identify opportunities and recommendations for a more effective application. Part One of the book assesses the effectiveness of the CDCE in influencing other areas of international law and the work conducted by other intergovernmental organizations through the recognition of the double nature (cultural and economic) of cultural goods and services. Part Two focuses on the practice of the CDCE beyond the recognition of the specificity of cultural goods and services in international law by addressing the CDCE’s call for greater international cooperation and stronger integration of cultural concerns in development strategies at the national and regional levels. The book will be of great use and interest to academics and practitioners in law, social and political sciences, agents of governmental and international organizations, and cultural sector stakeholders.

These collected chapters and interviews explore the current issues and debates about how copyright will or should adapt to meet the practices of 21st-century creators and internet users. The book begins with an overview of copyright law basics. It is organized by parts that correspond to creative genres: Literary Works, Visual Arts, Fine Art, Music, Video Games and Virtual Worlds, Fashion, and Technology. The chapters and interviews address issues such as copyright ownership in work created by Artificial Intelligence (AI), the musical remix market, whether appropriation is ever a fair use of a copyrighted work or if it is always theft, and whether internet- based platforms should do more to deter piracy of creators’ works. Each part ends with an essay explaining the significance of one or two landmark or trendsetting cases to help the reader understand the practical implications of the law. Written to be accessible to both lay and legal audiences, this unique collection addresses contemporary legal issues that all creators need to understand and will be essential reading for artists, designers, and musicians as well as the lawyers who represent them.
