Associate Davide Schiavetti authored an article titled "Protecting Fashion with Design Rights in the United States and European Union" for the American Bar Association's (ABA) Landslide® March/April 2024 magazine, Volume 16 Issue 3.

Intellectual property (IP) rights are ubiquitous, encountered in all walks of life and industry. In the fashion industry, design rights are an often overlooked source of protection for creativity. This article provides a comparison of the U.S. design patent process with the EU’s registered Community design system, highlighting differences and analyzing implications to the fashion industry.

Landslide® magazine is dedicated to the sharing of intellectual property knowledge and experience acquired on the front lines of practice, business, and the arts and sciences. The magazine explores national and international arenas and tracks intellectual property law as it gathers momentum in response to the technological, economic, and political transformations of the day.
