Title: Fashion Copying and Design of the Law
Authors: Shirwaikar, Pranjal
Keywords: Piracy paradox
Fashion industry
Intellectual property
Issue Date: Mar-2009
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: The paper provides an overview of the existing arguments towards grant of property rights in fashion creations, including a historic perspective of the fashion industry, piracy paradox as explained by Professor Raustiala and Professor Sprigman, and the current global fashion industry. In doing so, the article questions social cultural function of fashion as a subset of IP policy. As an integral constituent of ‘negative spaces’, fashion creations stand largely unprotected. The article takes into account development of American and European jurisprudence to propose a regime for protection of fashion creations in India.
