“The American Bar Association’s Legal Guide to Fashion Law” is a hit! The book has been lauded for its accessibility, one review stating, “The book is probably the first book…on fashion law which is clear it is written ‘by lawyers for non-lawyers,’ and lives up to its promise.” The book covers trademark, copyright, patent, financing, Internet matters, business entity formation, employment, legalities surrounding the runway, manufacturing, and licensing. It was edited by David H. Faux, principal of The Law Office of David H. Faux, P.C., a New York City law firm focused largely on copyright, trademark, and associated licensing.
“It's wonderful to see the hard work of all the authors and the American Bar Association come to fruition. They accomplished their goal of writing a fashion law book accessible to the lifeblood of the industry: fashion designers,” said David Faux, who also wrote the chapters on trademark creation and copyright. “The fashion law book was released just in time for a busy winter,” he continued. “More trademarks, licenses, lecturing at Parsons [The New School of Design], and, of course, some travel.”
In late October, Dave Faux will travel to Pittsburgh for talks on how to maintain an intellectual property portfolio. In April, he will travel to Washington D.C.. “I like to talk with local business owners and it is always a boon to have in-person meetings with my clients from around the country.”
He also coordinates and participates in lectures on fashion law at Parsons. “In recent years,” he says, “Parsons has moved our lectures from sophomores to seniors, and it makes a big difference.” Faux describes the seniors as soon-to-be professional fashion designers who will be in the fray of the fashion industry before they know it. “Nothing grabs a student's attention more than the fast approach of an unforgiving world.”
The Law Office of David H. Faux, P.C. is located in the Garment District of New York City. “The American Bar Association’s Legal Guide to Fashion Design” is available at the ABA website.
