Europe is known as the fashion headquarters of the globe. So, it would only make sense to start our tour in the United Kingdom.
This week, I sit down with Patent Paralegal Ore Adeyinka and Intellectual Property Attorney Rosie Burbidge. Although Ore does not identify herself as a fashion paralegal, patent law is a very important aspect of Fashion Law. Ore provides her insight on her experience not only in the United Kingdom but across Europe.
My second guest, Rosie Burbidge, is not only an Intellectual Property lawyer with extensive knowledge in the fashion industry. She is also the author of European Fashion Law: A Practical Guide from Start-up to Global Success. In this book, she drops gems on how new and old fashion businesses can start and maintain a successful brand in a legal and profitable way.
In other words, she literally wrote the book on our discussion.
In this episode, we go in depth on intellectual property protection in the U.K. and how it intersects with the fashion industry. Rosie even gives some background on her training, including her involvement in a very famous Fashion Law case: L’Oréal SA v. eBay International AG.
