Charles Colman to speak at Cardozo Law School panel addressing Louboutin v. YSL case (Wednesday, Feb. 8th at 6 P.M.)
Regular readers of LAW OF FASHION might have noticed that this writer has a little bit to say about the Louboutin v. YSL "red-sole case." (There was also this, and this, and this, and this, and other occasions on which I've gone on at -- sometimes excessive -- length about the dispute.)
But if you are interested in hearing even more of my observations and opinions about the case, drop by Cardozo Law School this coming Wednesday, February 8, 2012, from 6 to 8 P.M., for a panel hosted by the Cardozo Intellectual Property Law Society...
Cardozo is located at 55 5th Ave., NYC, and the panel will take place in the Moot Court Room on the First Floor of the building; it will conclude with a Q&A and refreshments.
Even if you're sick of hearing my views on the Louboutin case, consider dropping by to take in the wisdom of my fellow panelists:
- Barbara Kolsun, Executive Vice President and General Counsel, Stuart Weitzman, LLC (and co-editor of the first book on "fashion law" -- but don't forget to check out runner-up Navigating Fashion Law, which includes my 100-page chapter on intellectual property issues in the fashion industry)
- Fawn M. Horvath, Senior Counsel, Macy's, Inc. (where she handles intellectual property, advertising, digital and social media marketing, and antitrust matters, among other things; Fawn is also the immediate past Chair of the Corporate Counsel Section of the New York State Bar Association)
- Michael F. Colosi, Senior Vice President, Corporate Secretary and General Counsel, Kenneth Cole Productions (former Associate General Counsel and Assistant Secretary for The Warnaco Group and a former clerk to The Honorable J. Edward Lumbard of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit)
Hope to see you this Wednesday. If you can't make it (or even if you can), pencil in another event where fashion law, among other topics, will be discussed: the first annual "Fashioning Our Industry" conference, on February 28, 2012, from 9 A.M. to 5 P.M., at the Yale Club of New York City. Ms. Kolsun and I, along with many other speakers, are scheduled to speak on panels addressing a wide range of issues of concern to the fashion industry.
