Perfumes excluded from Copyright (Act II)

On July 1st, 2008, the French High Court ruled that a fragrance only resulted from a know-how and was not a creation eligible to copyright protection. The High Court had previously excluded a remuneration of perfume creators under copyright basis on June 13, 2006. The French case was ambivalent since then. This strong reiteration of last July involves high risks for defence policies but unfair competition and well-known trademark protection offer alternative grounds of action.
