Respecting and protecting the creation’s rights

Copyright, protecting your creations against copies

Ensuring that existing copyrights and image rights are respected is crucial to the safe use of your communication elements. Identifying literary and artistic works as well as product designs that are protected by copyright is necessary to establish your copyrights in these elements, and thus be able to defend them in the event of copies.

Securing and defending your copyrights

We ensure that you obtain the copyrights in any communication material produced by an employee or external contractor. We help you protect yourself in the event of a third party claim of copyright infringement. We define the relevant evidence that is admissible in court so that you can establish your rights in the event of copies. We also assist you with the lawful use of any protected content (such as photo, article etc.) in your communication. We assist you in respecting your moral rights and your right of publicity.
