Blog posts might be few and far between until my book, "Patents and Perverts," is finished, but...

It's been an exciting few months for this writer: most notably, Cambridge University Press has agreed to publish my first scholarly monograph, Patents and Perverts: The Hidden Moral Agenda of American Design Law. (For a preview of the subject matter of the book, visit my NYU Law faculty profile page and click on the links to Parts 1 and 2 of a peer-reviewed piece to be published in late 2015 and early 2016 by Jurimetrics: The Journal of Law, Science, and Technology.

 

I'm also in the process of refining the syllabus for my graduate-level "Contemporary Dress/Fashion Theory" seminar at NYU Steinhardt and collaborating on a new interdisciplinary curricular offering at the Law School.  And, of course, Charles Colman Law, PLLC continues to represent clients in fashion, media, new technology, and other creative fields (with the assistance of stellar Of Counsel, about whom you can read at the bottom of the CCL "About" page.)

 

All of this means that there won't be much time left over for blogging. You might see a new post here and there, but for much more frequent news on "fashion [and] law," head over to the LAW OF FASHION LinkedIn group, which now has roughly 4,700 members (making it the largest fashion law group on LinkedIn, and possibly all of social media...)  This blog's affiliated Twitter accounts -- individual, LOF, and CSFLS -- should also have relatively frequent activity.

Finally, keep an eye out for two forthcoming articles (Parts 1 and 2 of The History and Principles of American Copyright Protection for Fashion Design, a five-piece series that started out as this -- long story...) in the Harvard Journal of Sports and Entertainment Law, followed by a special essay entitled The Lawyer and the Aesthete, to be published in the Harvard Law Review Forum this December.  (For older publications, visit SSRN.)  I'll be back before you know it...
