Hi all,

I've been invited to attend the Europeana Fashion Conference [1] and participate in a workshop that will aim to:
"inspire attendees with a better understanding of intellectual property and fashion and to support attendees with best practices in sharing fashion images online"

I'm assuming that's a working title. There will be an IP lawyer representing fashion businesses, people from cultural institutions and me.

I've been specifically asked to share best practices of sharing fashion images online and to show the different licensing options.

Since fashion is not only about copyright, but also trademarks and industrial designs (at least in the EU and Japan), I wanted to show a few examples of what goes, what not and some issues we haven't fully solved yet. Is anyone on this list aware of any cases/discussions/decisions on Commons regarding fashion pictures and IP? Anything interesting will help.



FYI: WMBE and WMNL have in the past co-organised a fashion edit-a-thon with the Fashion Museum of Antwerp. [2]
