Plagiarism and Its Effects on Textile Design and Print Industries

Plagiarism means copying the work of others and claiming to be your own. This practice is there for a long time in the design and print industry. But with technology and innovation rapidly growing in today's modern world, we must face the negative repercussion, and plagiarism is the by-product of malicious use of technology. Traditionally designs created my artist was not known or established rapidly around the world. Nowadays, with growing social media, people can reach remote parts of society. Most of the time, when a designer wants to create something of his/her own, he needs to shut himself from technology or the outer world. Original ideas always created in isolation. Every designer or an artist uses the same inputs into his/her creations, which laid for a very long time in the respective field. For example, range of colors, basic assembly of outfit design, and so on. The creativity of an artist comes out on how well he/she can use the necessary tools and merge them into something unique and new.

This pattern not followed in today's era. With the easy obtainability of resources, everybody wants everything to happen in a jiffy. When an artist sits down to create something new, he needs to consider how he can make his design better? How can the artist bring elegance and efficiency to the masterpiece? These thoughts should come from the right place, and the attempt should be sincere. Each design builds some element or the other, which was missing in previous models, at least that should be the target of the designer. Extemporizing designs by adding simple utility factors can attract a lot of consumers. Plagiarism in the design and print industry is unpredictable as laws differ from the country, region, and time. Plagiarism is invading the copyrights of a designer who published original art. There are laws to protect the copyrights of the person, but how well people are going to exploit this law depends on individual integrity.

How Does Plagiarism and Copyright Violation Effect the Business of the Design Industry?

Copying a design and claiming to be your own, or just merely printing a poster or photograph on your site and claiming it to be yours. These types of classic examples filled in today's design industry. Claiming and copying other designers' creations and selling it under different brand names without any reference. These claims cost a fortune to the master creator and take a long time for legal action to be in the order of the flow: ideas, thoughts, and other minute intangible things are copied. Many thriving industries are running, which are exclusively dependent on plagiarism. These practices are short-sighted, one can be profited in the short term financially, but in the long run, these practices don't work. There are many applications and websites used these days to test the authenticity of the work produced. When a designer creates simple, holistic designs and release it worldwide, within no time, there will be 100 copies sold illegally with half the price across the globe. The question here is, who's a mistake? Creator or the buyer.

 When consumer stops buying counterfeits and knocks offs plagiarism and copyright violation market will come to a standstill. Awareness and education play a vital role. When the consumer realizes the mistake of buying duplicate goods, this industry can survive on originality. If we consider the price point, original products are costly. The first copy of clothes, bags or shoes, etc. are priced so high that it reaches only a few percent people. This business needs to be mutual, and design houses or brand powerhouses should diversify their products and make them more reachable to fight plagiarism. These business ethics became popular, especially for the last ten years, all started with the introduction of fast-fashion and designs built on short term trends and forecasts. From the makers to consumers, everybody is impatient and wants to create profits in the short term. This sort of goal is terrible for the economy and psychology of consumers.

Big brands have a lot to contribute as they built supply chains overnight and could create knock offs with seventy percent margins. The psychology of consumers around the world had a massive shift with the availability of enormous information. Consumers are more than aware of brands available in the market. This kind of sudden shift made people extremely brand conscious. These factors are again the root cause of social status, stigma, etc. These self-made beliefs in people and judgments made by consumers on whose wearing what and which brand has what market share created a paradigm shift in the design industry. The economy grows when people emerge with novel ideas and depend on the quality of work rather than quantity. Some of the world's biggest economies grew on unique ideas and hardships. If design houses focused on making classic pieces instead of the hip and short-run designs, there would be far fewer plagiarism and copyrights violation issues. Brands who approach in manufacturing goods with minimum inputs are likely to be around for a very long time.
