What is copyright?

Copyright protects works that are literary, musical, graphic, and fine art, and also works involving software, applied art, fashion designs, etc. Protection provides the author or creator with exclusive worldwide rights for a period of up to 70 years after death.

How are these rights acquired?

Protection arises automatically from the mere fact of creation without any particular formalities. There is therefore no need to file an application, but that can lead to difficulties in providing proof of creation and priority in the event of litigation.

GPI & Associés advises you on how to establish proof.

Just as for other Intellectual Property rights, GPI & Associés accompanies you in defending your rights.
