The best thing about a great idea is when it’s yours!
France is a hotbed of innovation, creativity and R&D. If you are a company exporting, setting up a franchise or distribution network or establishing a daughter company in France, you cannot afford not to protect your artistic and creative rights, designs, patents or trademarks in France and Europe.
