PRESIDENTIAL EXAMPLE: As president of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, Diane von Furstenberg has championed copyright protection. So she was naturally shocked when she was being accused late last week of having designed a jacket that resembled one by Canadian label Mercy. “When I saw it on the Internet, I thought, The print is completely different,” von Furstenberg told WWD. “But then I saw something about the style with the bow, so I am not sure.” She immediately contacted her design team and found that the woman who designed the item no longer worked for her. “I am finding out the information, and I have asked my attorney to contact [Mercy’s designers] and say that we are investigating,” von Furstenberg said. “I am mortified that something like that could happen here. I will do what is necessary to do, and if indeed there was an infringement, I will compensate and will use this example to make sure this doesn’t happen again — not just for me, but for everybody.”
