Abstract

Intellectual property pertains to the intangible aspects of the mind. Design piracy of apparel is possible within the United States because intellectual property rights do not fully protect clothing design. The purpose of this study was to examine the efforts of apparel designers and apparel companies to protect their fashion designs through patents.
