Gainsborough’s “Portrait” in Contemporary Fashion Dispute

In a previous entry, I wrote about an appeal to be heard by Russia’s new
Intellectual Property Court involving images of the Thomas Gainsborough
painting “Portrait of a Lady in Blue.” The case was filed against fashion
designer, Ila Yots, by the owner of the painting, The State Hermitage
Museum. Yots appealed an unfavorable decision requiring that she stop using
the images. Last week, the IP Court, which has been operational since July
of this year, ordered a new hearing for the designer. The case has been
remanded to the Commercial Court of Stavropol Territory.
