As a fully student produced fashion magazine on UC Berkeley campus, we fully understand and appreciate the time and creativity put into the work of designers and artists. Piracy in the fashion industry is omnipresent and copyright laws to protect designs must be created and enforced to protect these artists.
An SF based organization, Arts of Fashion Foundation advocates for the development of copyright laws to protect designers. We urge all those in support of Fashion and Design to help push for a Design Piracy Prohibition act that will safeguard the "creative potential" of current and future designers, giving "US fashion industry a true future". Currently they are circulated an online petition to endorse the Design Piracy Prohibition Act that will be presented to Congress. Please find the petition here and help support the fashion industry.
