Event Details

You’re invited to the Fashion Law Institute’s annual ethics event, Dead to Rights: Ethical Perspectives on Cultural Appropriation, Postmortem Rights of Publicity, and the Ghost of Harvey Weinstein.

Two conversations will discuss intellectual property and sexual harassment law: 

  • When does a costume constitute cultural misappropriation?
  • How can we keep fear of cultural appropriation from curtailing cultural exchange in fashion?
  • Should fashion houses be haunted by ghosts of celebrities past in states without postmortem publicity rights?


  • Do settlement agreements in sexual harassment cases bury victims in unethical silence?
  • What does Harvey Weinstein’s ghastly employment contract say about the spirit of corporate law?
  • Should business parters be scared off by allegations of sexual harassment?
  • What can we do to make the fashion industry a less frightening place?
