    fashionFashion Law and Business: Brands and Retailers 

    To the general public, the fashion industry is most closely identified with celebrated fashion houses mounting elaborate and highly publicized runway shows in the major fashion capitals of the world. In reality, the fashion industry is much more diverse, complex, and global. FASHION LAW AND BUSINESS unravels the complexity and provides clear guidance on the wide range of legal and business issues faced by fashion industry participants, including designers, suppliers, manufacturers of apparel and accessories, and retailers.

    In FASHION LAW AND BUSINESS you’ll learn:

    • The considerations involved in starting a company in the fashion industry, including developing a business plan, determining the form and structure of the legal entity, and obtaining financing.

    • How patent, trademark, and copyright law have been applied to the fashion industry and their impact in such areas as gray market goods and counterfeiting.

    • The contractual relationships and regulatory issues applicable to the design and production of fashion products.

    • The dynamics of retail sales in the apparel industry, including a discussion of e-commerce and mobile commerce

    • The legal issues involved in leasing and licensing brick-and-mortar retail stores, with a focus on the significant contractual terms that should be considered in connection with such real estate transactions.

    • How to deal with labor and employment issues that relate to the fashion industry, including working conditions, wages and hours, child labor, use of independent contractors such as sales representatives, and developments in collective bargaining in the fashion industry.

    Written by two of America’s leading fashion and retail law authorities, FASHION LAW AND BUSINESS provides you with an integrated, comprehensive guide to the issues affecting the fashion industry today.

  • Interview with our AALL 2013 Kayak & Paddle Sweepstakes Winner: Ruck DeMinico

    Date: 2013.08.14 | Category: EBooks, Interview, Just for librarians, Law Libraries, PLI Discover PLUS (our upgraded eBook library) | Response: 0

    On Monday July 15th 2013 at the 106th American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) Annual Meeting & Conference, Practising Law Institute announced its lucky sweepstakes winner, Ruck DeMinico of Merlin Law Group.

    Tell us a little about yourself, your work, and what a typical day looks like for you:

    I started off my legal career as a trial attorney and litigated for the first dozen years, trying a couple hundred jury trials. I had always been interested in librarianship and decided to go back to get my degree and work at what I really enjoyed. I don’t know that there is a typical day – unless controlled chaos can be considered typical. Being a sole librarian for a firm with offices on both coasts and in seven states, research questions can come in on any jurisdiction and, as in any private firm, they are all considered rush/priority by the sender and can come at any time of the day or night. I also handle the traditional library functions, vendor relations, DMS/KM, edit and maintain the firm blogs, create handout materials and PowerPoints for presentations by firm attorneys at seminars, and along with the Managing Attorney and COO am a member of the firm’s Management team.

    Have you kayaked before? Where will you take your Discover PLUS branded Kayak:

    I have, in the Miami/Everglades area. I love canoeing and spend as much free time as I can on the rivers here in Florida. I’m looking forward to exploring the mangroves around Tampa Bay with the kayak and may take fishing back up now that I can maneuver in the mangroves.

    What do you like most about your job as Knowledge Manager of Merlin Law Group:

    The constant change in what I’m doing. Every day is different, with new challenges.

    As an attorney and law librarian, what do you think are the most challenging issues/trends shaping the legal industry today?:

    I would say ESI/e-discovery, especially for smaller cases that may still have large amounts of electronic data to provide – where the use of vendors may be cost prohibitive.

    Are you familiar with Discover PLUS, PLI’s eBook library?  Did you receive a demo at PLI’s booth at the American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) Conference in Seattle:

    I did see the demo at AALL.  I like the ‘all-inclusive’ business model, rather than having to choose which individual books to purchase or subscribe to.

     

    Discover PLUS provides complete online access to PLI’s Course Handbooks, Treatises, Answer Books, Legal Forms and Program Transcripts.
