Eleonora Rosati and Fashion Law London quoted in The Guardian
An article published by The Guardian on 18 December 2020 features a commentary that Fashion Law London's Eleonora Rosati has offered in relation to copying of fashion designs. Here's an extract from the article by Priya Elan:

Did they copy you or did they copy someone else?”
