LOL, yes you are. But generally, hard science is a pre-req for patent litigation, not so called "soft IP," meaning trademark and copyright work. Patents are generally sought for inventions, processes, and chemical or material compositions. Copyrights, as defined here, are for original (but not necessarily unique, interestingly enough!) works of art, literature, design, music, compilation, etc. Fashion design cannot generally be copyrighted because fashion, ie: clothing, is seen as a necessary item, and it would be contrary to public policy to drive up the cost of clothing. You could make an argument for fashion as art or sculpture, when talking about runway creations that will never be mass produced. It really is funny... I didn't realize how fascinating I found this stuff until I got here.

And to Hannah, other countries (IE: the EU) have much stricter copyright protections for their fashion industries. In the US, it is not illegal to buy a knock-off. In France I believe it is.

Note: it is both illegal and civilly actionable to sell knock-offs here, however.


thanks, OS! i also find this super-interesting. i just spent the last 20 minutes at work reading Counterfeit Chic. awesome that Fordham offers a Fashion Law seminar!definitely going to look into that.


I don't know when we are going to have the class in the future. Professor Scafidi was visiting, and we are trying to get her back! I met her at an event last semester, and she is brilliant.

Ha, where do you summer...

I'm surprised no one said something like, "I only summer at AmLaw 100 firms."

I summer in Cape Cod, I sandwich at the Royal Scarlet Deli, and I beer at the Lazy Boy Saloon

I'm enjoying the discussion in the 'why can't guys in law school get laid' thread. Especially because it just turned to pumas and meeting one would be my ideal life.

What is everyone's favorite New York movie? Mine is Annie Hall, although I love all of Woody Allen's earlier movies. The opening scene of Manhattan sends chills down my spine, and I've been watching it endlessly for the past few days.

Does the fact that my status is still listed as "Complete" bode poorly? Should I be in like, "Committee Review" by now or does Fordham only update with rejections/acceptance/WL?

I called them a few weeks ago and they told me I was currently under review. You could try that.

I'm a big fan of Serpico (especially Charlie Kelly's interpretation), as well as the original Taking of Pelham 123.

I think The Godfather falls into this category as well.

And Taxi Driver.

Yeah there's a whole scale; badger, puma, couger, etc

It's top-secret guy code so that's all I can tell you.

Holy crap!

I saw the pictures that people were posting there (Eff!) I posted my own that blows them all out of the water, though ... That's right: Crenshaw, CA. That (this) is where I have been spending the last few summers (try not to be jealous) :-)

Cougar is roughly around 35-45 and preys on younger men, puma is the same exact thing except in the 27-35 age bracket. Sabretooth is 45+. Badger is considered an 'unattractive cougar'.

So, at 24, I'm a little old for a puma's tastes, but seeing as she'd probably be 1) more educated than I am, and 2) more fiancially secure than I am and 3) willing to buy me booze/food, and doesn't expect too much from me aside to look pretty, I'm down.

I wish I knew, my guess is one of the following:

- The trendy bars that I can't get in to
- The weight room in the gym, just kinda hanging out.
- Coffee shops in down town type areas.

I obviously fail at finding them, otherwise you guys probably never would have met me because I would be doing everything in my power to trick a successful woman into marrying me.

Sometimes I wish I could fake a pregnancy.

This is very interesting. I am older than my boyfriend and often get referred to as a cougar. I'll be sure to correct people now, informing them that I am, in fact, a puma.
