LAW AND LUXURY NEWS ALERT : 

Dolce&Gabbana designers were found guilty in Italian court of Tax evasion, WWD reports (read an article also on People). But how reliable is an Italian Tax conviction anyway? Will they really have to serve time come September? 

It may be Italian tradition to remain liberi until appeal, alla Berlusconi-

Normally under Italian law, a defendant “won’t face imprisonment unless the conviction is upheld on a final appeal, which must be completed before the statute of limitations expires.” We’ll be keeping our Law and Luxury eyes and ears on alert!

Soon working for luxury brand good companies as unpaid interns in the USA (Hello Gucci/Ferragamo/any art gallery in Chelsea) might be a thing of the past- thank goodness!

Read all about it in “The ‘Black Swan’ Intern Ruling Could Change Unpaid Internships Forever”, The Atlantic Wire, June 12, 2013

And in "Former Intern Sues Warner Music Group And Atlantic Records Over Unpaid Internship", The Huffington Post, June 17, 2013 

Law and Luxury come together again! The NY State Legislature just approved a measure that would recognize fashion models under the age of 18 as child performers for print and runway work (see NY Times Article, “A New York Law Could Change the Look of Fashion Week”, pg 4 of Sunday Styles).

Law and Luxury 101 
Property Class shows us the case of the Stolen Dürer in 
Kunstsammlungen zu Weimar v. Elicofon
United States District Court, Eastern District of New York, 1981
RULE: Nemo dat-
The American Soldier who stole the painting from its castle hiding place in 1945 could not transfer good title to the defendant,  Mr. Elicofon, when said defendant bought the Dürer in 1946. One cannot give that which one does not have. Painting returned to the Museum from whence it came. 
Law and Luxury Lesson: 
Never fear, Art Law is here.
