A patent is a title deed intended to protect an invention by conferring an operating monopoly for a maximum of 20 years. An invention is a technical solution to a technical problem.
A trademark is a title deed intended to protect a distinctive sign which identifies products and/or services. The operating monopoly conferred by the trademark is meant to be used in perpetuity through its successive renewals through time.
A design or model is a title deed intended to protect a creation by conferring an operating monopoly for a maximum of 25 years. An industrial design or model aims to protect the aesthetic and purely ornamental aspects of a product.
"Legally formed contracts serve as law for those who entered into them” (Article 1103 of the French Civil Code)
In other words, a contract is nothing more than the ground rules for the relationship between two people (partners or competitors) who have common but also divergent interests. These ground rules can place very different obligations on the parties. It is better to avoid bearing obligations that are against your interests.
Our law firm is able to provide you assistance in litigation (defence and plaintiff) regarding industrial or intellectual property rights (patents, trademarks, designs or models) and rights relating to all related matters (copyrights, domain names, employee inventions, etc.).
