Protect your creative work by registering copyright
Literary and artistic property rights, along with industrial property, is one of the components covered by the framework of intellectual property.
It allows any work of the mind to be protected. We will look at the characteristics of literary and artistic property and the conditions of this protection.
In France, literary and artistic property includes both the rights of the author and neighboring rights.
Copyright can be defined as the set of exclusive prerogatives that a creator has over their work. Copyright consists of:
While the author’s economic rights over his work have a time limit which in France is up to 70 years after the author’s death, the moral rights are perpetual, inalienable and imprescriptible.
Neighboring rights, however, refer to all the moral and economic rights granted to people who are not authors of the work but who are related to it.
These can be performers, phonogram or videogram producers or audiovisual communication companies.
Beneficiaries of neighboring rights have an exclusive right to authorize or prohibit the exploitation of their service and to receive remuneration.
Not all work can be protected by copyright. For the literary and artistic property code to protect work, it must be original and express the personality of its author. Once proof of this originality has been provided, the work is protected from the moment of creation and by the mere fact of its creation, Article L 111-1 of the Intellectual Property Code.
To protect work from third parties, the author must also be able to prove the date of the artistic creation. Which is why we recommend that you use our copyright registration system in order to protect your work in the event of an infringement, content plagiarism, parasitism or unfair competition.
