Consulting on protection matters
Copyright does not need to be registered with an office; it is established as soon as the work is created. We will help you identify what is likely to be protected in this way, to identify who the holder of these rights would be (employees, service provider, company, etc.) and pull together evidence that will enable you to date your creations with certainty and monitor them (Soleau envelope, Blockchain, etc.).
Whether you are an author, publisher, communications agency or producer, we assist you in negotiating and drafting agreements concerning the commercial use of your copyright (rights transfer agreement). The drafting of copyright transfer agreements must comply with numerous legal and jurisprudential principles (prohibiting the overall assignment of future works, determining royalties, addressing moral rights, etc.).
We have developed specific expertise in IT contracts (developing managed services, licensing, Saas, PaaS, etc.) which, although they naturally fall within the scope of general contract law, have a significant number of unique legal characteristics (access to sources, service provider obligations, prerogatives of the licensee, error corrections, guarantee, liability, software or software components under free licenses, etc.).
