A thought about Intellectual Property

From an interesting article about the edges of intellectual property law on Slate:

For the fashion industry, a lack of intellectual property protection may not be a problem: The trickle-down of high-end fashion helps create obsolescence and the demand for more high-end fashion.

But where does that leave mass luxury brands like Crocs?  I would imagine outside this framework, as Crocs are likely to become a commodity soon.
