Text and music protection
In France, any original creation is protected by copyright. The laws of March the 11th of 1957 and July the 3rd of 1985 mention the exclusive ownership of the work by its creator, its sole right of exploitation and its right of authorization or refusal of use. Articles L.111-1 and L.123-1 of the Intellectual Property Code specify that the author has exercised his music copyright throughout his life. Upon his death, this right is passed on to his heirs for a period of 70 years. The protection of music is therefore expected from the creation of the operation, even though it is better to prove the ownership of its production by safer means.
