REPLICA DESIGN LIGHTING: 100% LEGAL
IS IT LEGAL TO BUY REPLICA LIGHTING?
Lmodernlighting is a China company that operates under Chinese copyright law. In 2015 the government decided on a 5 year transitional period before extending copyright protection from 25 years after creation, to 70 years after the death of the designer. So, in April 2020 legislation will alter.
Currently we are able to reproduce designs and sell replica lighting fixtures, which is exactly what we do. As a result, we comply fully with government's law, making it perfectly legal to buy beautiful lighting fixtures from Lmodernlighting.com.
WHAT IF I DON'T LIVE IN THE CHINA?
If you live in an China it is still 100% legal to buy and import our products from our warehouse in the China mainland, even if the copyright law in your country differs to that in the China. This is because you are not infringing any exclusive rights under local copyright regulation in other countries when you are buying replica lighting fixtures.
