Deceptive Trade Practices – september 2011

A former journalist offered a probationary filing service subject to charges for inventions, presenting the protection of inventions by copyright as an alternative to patents.
The Court (“Tribunal de Grande Instance” of Paris) decided on March 4, 2011 that it consisted of deceptive trade practices.
The Court notes that copyright does not protect an invention, but only a form of original expression that is not dictated by a function or technical constraints.
