This is GREAT news!!!
On Monday, New York Sen. Charles Schumer, reintroduced a bill that would provide more copyright protection for designers' creations.
The Innovative Design Protection and Piracy Prevention Act was originally presented to Congress last year by Rep. Bob Goodlatte, but very little progress has been made after its two biggest proponents, the American Apparel & Footwear Association and the CFDA, had to come up with a different approach.
However, now that Schumer got the ball running this week, hope has returned to the industry!
Currently copyright protection doesn't apply
