Retail+IP

Intellectual Property rights are often key to retailing businesses, whether that be the use of third party rights in the retailing of products, but also in the protection of own-brand labels.

Intellectual property rights can have a major impact on the supply chains of retailers and impact not only the consumer facing aspect of the business in the offline or online facia but also in a retailers capacity to source and manufacture its products across the globe.

The Retail+IP group aims at discussing stories and legal developments in the intellectual property field which impact the retailing field. It will not only discuss legal developments but also trade stories of a retail nature.

It should be of interest to anyone with an interest to retail and intellectual property rights.

Fashion+IP

Website: https://www.linkedin.com/groups/3904169/profile

When it comes to fashion, consumers purchasing decisions are often driven by issues relating to intellectual property; matters concerning trade marks, designs, copyright and sometimes patents. This is why it is important that companies and designers obtain the exclusive rights to their IP because in time their entire success will be formulated around these matters.
When a fashion, cosmetic or luxury brand is sold it is the IP assets that are of key importance to a purchaser. Ultimately, the brand is the business.

This group is designed to bring together those in the fashion, cosmetics, accessories and luxury goods market who are interested in the legal side of branding and design.
The group will focus on trade mark, design and to a limited extent patent issues affecting the fashion industry in its most general sense and will post updates on cases and how companies are tackling IP problems.
