NYC Bar Seminar Will ExamineLicensing In The Fashion Industry

Friday, June 1, 2007 - 01:00

Lawyering in the Fashion Industry: A Practical Guide to Licensing, Trademark Protection & Other Industry Issues is the title of a CLE seminar to be presented by the New York City Bar Association.

The program will take place on Tuesday, June 12 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the House of the Association, 42 West 44th Street, New York City.

At this seminar an experienced panel will provide participants with practical insights on dealing effectively with these and other industry issues. The program will include an in-depth analysis of a typical "licensor" form of fashion trademark agreement, focusing on key legal and business points for licensors and licensees. Alternatives to traditional licensing arrangements, including joint ventures, purchase options, and co-branding deals, as well as special issues in dealing with the celebrity licensor, will be examined.

The program chair is Kenneth P. Kopelman, Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP.
