New York, NY (PRWEB) June 13, 2013
The American Bar Association is on track to release its latest in a series of books for non-lawyers called “The ABA’s Legal Guide to Fashion Design” edited by David H. Faux of the Law Office of David H. Faux, P.C. “Finishing the book was difficult,” said Faux, “because fashion design is a tough business, and we wanted this to be an authoritative handbook. So, it covers trademark, copyright, design patent, Internet law, business entity formation, financing, employment law, standards in manufacturing contract, standards in licensing agreements, and much of the pertinent law surrounding a Runway event. Plus, the book needed to have more English than legalese!” Faux also mentions the high quality of the illustrations created by Sisley Yuhann, a student at Parsons The New School for Design. While no certain distribution date has been set, it is on track for release in the first week of September, just in time for New York Fashion Week.
After authoring the Introduction, the chapters on “Trademark Creation,” and “Copyright and Fashion,” as well as editing, David H. Faux shifted focus to his Theater Law practice. With speeches scheduled for Miami in June, Orlando in July, and Chicago in August, Faux is already looking towards a busy summer.
“The presentation in Miami is predominantly for other attorneys,” Faux commented. “There are some great lawyers in Miami, but they do not practice in Theater every day. So it is good to have a refresher about all the quirky copyright issues: live performance licenses, derivative works, co-authorship agreements, subsidiary rights, and more.” The Orlando and Chicago presentations are only for authors, addressing authorial rights in the theater.
During the speaking tour, @davefaux will supplement his travel through social media. “Twitter is great for basic questions, keeping lawyers apprised and clients informed.” You can also find information about the Law Office on Google+. David H. Faux’s LinkedIn page was among the top 5% of all linked in pages viewed in 2012. “It is a great age to live in. As long as professional standards are maintained, technology can be used to stay informed, in touch, and a few steps ahead of your competition.”
