Designers Sue Over Knockoffs


More than 20 designers concerned about knockoffs of their fashions have filed lawsuits against the clothing chain Forever 21.

Other stores have been sued as well, the New York Times reports.

The designers are hoping to expand laws that bar counterfeit goods to prevent sales of clothing that copies their original design. A bill introduced by nine senators last month supports their quest.

“For me, this is not simply about copying,” designer Anna Sui told the newspaper. “The issue is also timing. These copies are hitting the market before the original versions do.”
