Panel I: The Five Sense: The Rise of Non-Traditional Trademarks in the Fashion

The utilitarian functionality of clothing has brought challenges for designers to traditionally trademark their products. Designers are facing challenges in protecting their wares, as non-traditional trademarks are more expensive to obtain and enforce.
This panel will examine the limits of trademark and trade dress protection within the fashion industry: shoes, models, scents...
Panelists will examine the latest challenges and litigations in the U.S. and France and will engage in comparative analysis.

Panel II: Modern Silk Road: Cross Border Anticounterfeiting Strategies

Discussion will cover the impact of counterfeit on the global economy and explore emerging challenges.
Notably, the silk road has allowed numerous counterfeit goods to cross Europe; we will discuss challenges and potentiel solutions, and compare with how the U.S. deals with similar challenges with Chinese counterfeits.
The internet has also become a new channel for counterfeit distribution, as products are now sold on social networks and second-hand sites. Panelists will examine innovative solutions and legal strategy within the industry.

In light of the MeToo movement, how has the protection of a model’s image transformed?
