In its first design copyright case in decades, the Supreme Court just ruled in Varsity Brands that (at least some) fashion designs are copyrightable. Patents have historically been the IP right of choice for entrepreneurs, designers and engineers of wearable technology products. Is this decision a game-changer? For a discussion of this and other issues relating to copyright and wearable technology, join Annual Survey of American Law and a panel of experts from the worlds of legal academia, IP practice and wearable technology design:
— Katherine Strandburg, Alfred B. Engelberg Professor of Law, NYU School of Law (moderator)
— Christopher Buccafusco, Professor of Law, Director of Intellectual Property & Information Law Program, Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law
— Janet Cullum, Partner, Cooley LLP
— Billie Whitehouse, CEO, Co-Founder & Creative Director, Wearable Experiments
This panel is the second installment in Annual Survey of American Law’s 2017 Symposium, “Copyrighting What We Wear: A Legal and Technological Restyling.”
