ELLE Decoration Fought the Fakes and Won!
Elle Decoration’s hottest article this month looks at the battle of copycat designers in the industry. In 2012 ELLE Decoration launched their ‘Equal Rights for Design’ petition which stated Britain as the designer knock-off capital of Europe.
They took their campaign to the government and won, bringing copyright protection inline with other creative disciplines such as music and literature.
Despite the victory the law will not come into place until January 2017 giving the faux designer’s time to sell their stock.
So what does this mean for the British design market? Now the original designers will get the recognition that they deserve and gain a copyright protection similar to other creative disciplines after their passing.
Below are the real deals of the most popular ripped off classics!
