NYCLA Amicus Curiae

Oct 20, 2023

The NYCLA Amicus Curiae Podcast with Host Daniel K. Wiig is proud to present our latest episode with guest Olivera Medenica. Olivera is an equity partner at Dunnington Bartholow & Miller LLP, she is a published author and expert of soft IP law. In this episode, we are breaking down the case against fast fashion giant SHEIN. In the words of Meek Mills and Drake, SHEIN has been "Hit With A RICO", the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, or RICO. SHEIN is accused of infringing on artists' rights by copying their designs, the complaint (Krista Perry v. Shein Distribution Corporation) in a federal district court in California alleges. The plaintiffs laywers note in the complaint that "Shein has grown rich by committing individual infringements over and over again, as part of a long and continuous pattern of racketeering, which shows no sign of abating". Olivera provides our listeners with valuable legal insights on the case, the implications of artificial intelligence in the business of fashion, intellectual property, trademarks, service marks, copyright, and the use of the RICO Act. This is an episode you don't want to miss.
