Dead to Rights: Ethical Perspectives on Cultural Appropriation, Postmortem Rights of Publicity, and the Ghost of Harvey Weinstein
Halloween and the Day of the Dead are fast approaching, and for this year's annual ethics CLE event, we'd like to treat you to a pair of thought-provoking panels. Join us for an insightful -- and at times hair-raising -- discussion of issues from intellectual property's twilight zone and on the cutting edge of sexual harassment law:
- When does a costume constitute cultural misappropriation?
- How can we keep fear of cultural appropriation from curtailing cultural exchange in fashion?
- Should fashion houses be haunted by ghosts of celebrities past in states without postmortem publicity rights?
- Do settlement agreements in sexual harassment cases bury victims in unethical silence?
- What does Harvey Weinstein's ghastly employment contract say about the spirit of corporate law?
- Should business parters be scared off by allegations of sexual harassment?
- What can we do to make the fashion industry a less frightening place?
