CFDA Presents.....Innovative Design Protection and Piracy Prevention Act
In August of this year the Council of Fashion Designers of America recently passed a bill through congress. This bill known as the Innovative Design Protection and Piracy Prevention Act or IDPPA, giving protection to the new and original creativity. Now they are stopping any type of "Knock Off artist" who replicate the designs as well as gaining profit from another persons work. I find this interesting like there was a situation a long time ago about Forever 21 stealing Diane Von Furstenburg's design...Same dress...same design...different price so civil action were taken place but I am not sure of the aftermath. Then there was Nike VS Louis Vuitton....Christian Louboutin vs...well hell everyone because everybody wants to rock a red bottom.
