Music industry to blame for attitudes towards design copies, says Eames Demetrios

"Ridiculous choices" made by the music industry have made it difficult for furniture companies to argue against copies of products by designers like Charles and Ray Eames, according to the Modernists' grandson.

"The music industry, because of its really ridiculous choices in how it has treated intellectual property, has made it harder for people to make arguments [against design copies]," said Eames Demetrios, who runs the Eames Office set up by his grandparents in Los Angeles.
