Introducing Guest Blogger Susan Scafidi

Scafidi_photo_color2.JPGI am pleased to announce that Susan Scafidi of Counterfeit Chic fame will be joining us as a guest blogger this month.

Susan is the first U.S. law professor ever to offer a course in Fashion Law, and she has testified in Congress regarding the proposed extension of legal protection to fashion designs through the Design Piracy Prohibition Act. Her areas of expertise include intellectual property and cultural property. She is currently a visiting professor at Fordham Law School and formerly a tenured member of both the law and history faculties at SMU. In addition, Susan has taught at a number of other law schools, including most recently Yale and Georgetown. After attending Duke University and the Yale Law School, she pursued graduate study in legal history at Berkeley and the University of Chicago and clerked for Judge Morris S. Arnold of the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals. Susan is the author of the book Who Owns Culture? Appropriation and Authenticity in American Law (2005). Her next book, on intellectual property and fashion design, is forthcoming from Yale University Press.
