GrayRobinson Shareholder Francesca Russo will present “Can You Spot a Fake? Intellectual Property in Art & Fashion Law” at the American Bar Association (ABA) International Law Section Fall Conference in Madrid, Spain. The panel presentation will explore how artists and fashion designers have struggled for centuries to protect their intellectual property rights from being copied or exploited without attribution, permission, or compensation. With the explosion of virtual art and NFTs, the intense demand for luxury and designer goods in secondary markets, and the lack of regulation by governments and international bodies of art-related transactions, the possible violation of intellectual property rights seems limitless. In addition to speaking on the panel, Russo is serving as the co-chair of this program.
