French Intellectual Property Law

French Intellectual Property Law

French intellectual property law is very formal and strict. For example, a license must necessarily be granted for a specified term. Pursuant to French law, perpetual licenses are null and void as it is considered that they are not granted for a term.

We work with attorneys who have specific and specialised experience in intellectual property law, including with European Trademark attorneys, who can assist you in all matters relating to intellectual property, including:

  • Availability searches for trademarks
  • Filing and registration of French and European trademarks
  • Opposition proceedings
  • Portfolio management and development
  • Protection of confidential know-how and trade secrets
  • Online brand protection
  • Data protection and privacy
  • Domain names, key words and cyber-squatting
  • Online counterfeiting and IP infringement
  • E-commerce consumer regulations
  • Software development and license contracts
  • Software and hardware maintenance contracts
  • SAAS contracts
  • Service level agreements
  • Outsourcing agreements
  • IP development and co-develpment
  • IP licensing and assignment contracts
  • Infringement of IP rights
  • False advertisement
  • Unfair competition
  • Customs surveys
  • IP Interim protection measures
  • IP-related litigation before French courts
