Comics Arts Conference #8: Costumes and Copyright

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

UPDATED: Fri, Jul 22, 09:41AM
From the Yellow Kid's expressive nightshirt to last year's Supreme Court ruling on Spider-Man's web shooters, what characters wear is an integral part of comics culture - and lawsuits. Professor Susan Scafidi (founder of the Fashion Law Institute, Fordham Law School), Jeff Trexler (Fashion Law Institute, Fordham Law School), and Cindy Levitt (Senior Vice President Merchandise and Marketing, Hot Topic) explore the legal dimension of comics couture, covering such issues as collaborations between the fashion and entertainment industries; fandom, cosplay, and emerging designers; the impact of comics on fashion; diversity and cultural appropriation; the representation of fashion-related intellectual property theft; the perception of comics and fashion in statutes and court cases; the regulation of identity and gender norms; and current controversies involving the translation of two-dimensional style to the physical realm.
