Working together to identify the legal protection you need for your Industrial Property
Naturally, the first thing that comes to mind here will be your trademarks and product distribution. It's important not to overlook technological innovations, labelling, packaging and bottle design, not to mention regulatory requirements and the defence of your intellectual property rights...
Let's talk about your trademarks
When it comes to beverages, rights to geographical indications, consumer protection and public health rules, and the particularities of distribution channels, combine to impose a particularly stringent legal framework on trademark holders. Each of those issues is a potential pitfall which the Plasseraud IP Wine team can help you avoid.
You are innovators too
Perhaps you have worked on a new bottling system, or developed a new process that solves a technical problem regarding the fermentation or storage of wine - this kind of technical innovation can be protected by means of a patent, which will give you ammunition against anybody who may copy it, and will be an asset to your business in both balance sheet and marketing terms.
Wines and terroirs: between reason and passion
Whether it arises in connection with designations of origin or quality marks, the link between wine and geographical indications is central to the issues that businesses in this sector have to deal with. Our comprehensive knowledge of these matters is at your disposal, along with our experience in the area.
A holistic approach incorporating marketing and communication
In a globalised economy, a protection and defence strategy must, if it is to be effective, include consideration of labelling, marketing and the distribution of your products. We also support you in dealing with the requirements imposed by public health regulations.
A watchful eye on your innovations
Defending your IP rights and protecting your competitive edge is a fundamental requirement, both in France and internationally. We put you in a position to take action against counterfeiting: we support you in developing the right defence and monitoring strategy, both with regard to disputes with competitors and before the competent administrative bodies.
