Loni Schutte is an attorney based in San Diego at one of America’s largest intellectual property law firms, Knobbe Martens. Prior to her return to southern California, Loni spent three years at Duke Law School learning as much as possible about two of the most vibrant and evolving areas: fashion and intellectual property law.
Integrating the two, she published an article entitled “Copyright for Couture,” which focuses on a new bill that has been proposed several times in Congress, the Innovative Design Protection Act. If passed, the bill would extend a minimal amount of copyright protection to fashion designs, aiding in the fight against design piracy.
Loni’s love for traveling has carried her to over 30 different countries where she gained an appreciation of countless different cultures and highly divergent fashion trends. While she loves classic and traditional styles, she is especially passionate about fostering designer’s new and innovative ideas through intellectual property law.
Loni has a Bachelor of Science from the University of Arizona and a Juris Doctor from Duke Law School. Loni can be contacted at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
