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

Senate Judiciary Committee Passes Copyright Infringement Act

Creating and selling knockoffs just might get more difficult.

On Wednesday morning the Senate Judiciary Committee approved the Innovative Design Protection and Piracy Prevention Act.

Under the IDPPA, both established and informal designers will receive copyright protection for their "unique and original designs".

Interesting.

We have a feeling there's going to be A LOT of lawsuits in the future.

What do U think of the IDPPA???
