FRENCH INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY CODE 2006, DADVSI MODIFICATION & ANTI-PIRACY
In response to European pressure to update their Intellectual Property regime to meet current EU standards, the French Parliament passed a new law on copyright and related rights on August 1, 2006 . This is called the “Loi relative au Droit d'Auteur et aux Droits Voisins dans la Société de l'Information,” referred to as DADVSI. This law translates to the “Law on Copyright and Neighboring Rights in the Information Society.”
