For the protection of any intellectual works, copyright is acquired without formality by the very act of creating the work itself, whatever its nature. It can be written, oral, sound, graphical, plastic, software, etc., so long as it is both original and bears the imprint of its author’s personality.
Condition of originality
Proof of authenticity
In order to enforce your work’s copyright, such as in the event of conflict, you must be able to prove the date of its creation. The deposit of a sealed, Soleau envelope at the INPI, or on the record with an officer of the court, make it possible to prove, indisputably and with certainty, the date of creation and its content. Colbert Innovation provides support, advice, and management for the protection of your works.

The stakes of an application
Filing an application is a pivotal moment in the life of any patent, trademark, or industrial design as it enables legal protection and sets the exploitation strategy in motion.
A patent provides both legal and economic protection throughout the life of the innovation.
