France IP Overview

It is not at all excessive to call France the birthplace of the intellectual property system in the modern world, because France is not only the birthplace of the Paris Convention which initiated the priority system, but also one of the most innovative countries in the world and one of the core countries dealing with intellectual property matters.
As a founding member of the European Union, the development of intellectual property in France has also benefited from many ways of applications, such as French patent applications, European patent applications, EU unitary patent applications that are about to enter into force, PCT applications, France, EU and international trademark or design applications.
