WASHINGTON — A deal is in the works between two powerful industry groups over Congressional legislation that would provide copyright protection for fashion designs for three years.
The Council of Fashion Designers of America, which has trumpeted the bill, and the American Apparel & Footwear Association, which raised concerns about the scope and risk of litigation for some of the industry's largest vendors, will each vote in the next two weeks on proposed changes to the legislation, which has been stuck in Congressional committee because of industry infighting.
