Welcome California Lawyer readers!

Thanks to California Lawyer Senior Editor Thomas Brom for an article in the May issue exploring the debate over the Design Piracy Prohibition Act.  Although the editor-in-chief elsewhere describes fashion as "a world where idealism is perhaps in shorter supply," I had to laugh when I read perhaps one of my most ominous quotes ever:  "Every young designer has a knockoff story to tell.

Sad but true, and most accurately quoted.  Still, I didn't mean to sound quite so much like the opening line of a gothic tale of fashion horror -- especially for readers in sunny California.  Then again, Hollywood is all about drama.
