This is my beautiful mom! I turned to her on advice about having a designer dress “copied” by Chinese seamstresses. Per my submission: “The bride immediately consulted her mother, who holds a Ph.D. in art history from Bryn Mawr, as well as a juris doctor from Harvard Law School. Her mother had transitioned from academia to law upon becoming exposed to issues surrounding intellectual property protections for artists. The bride’s mother assured her daughter that copyright law concerning garments usually does not provide meaningful trademark protection for wedding dress designs. This would hold true so long as the dress in question lacked unique printed patterns and did not feature non-obvious design elements.”
