Publication of the "Mélanges en l’honneur de François Greffe"

The CEIPI is pleased to announce the publication of the "Mélanges en l’honneur de François Greffe".

This first publication in CEIPI's new “Mélanges Collection” was edited by Yann Basire, CEIPI's Director General, and Flora Donaud, Doctor of Law and Lawyer.

François Greffe, a member of the Paris Bar, honorary professor at CEIPI where he taught for 40 years, and author of the Traité des dessins et des modèles, regularly updated and awarded a prize by the Académie des Beaux-Arts, was recognised as one of France's leading specialists in design law.

His contribution to intellectual property law is invaluable.

Over the past 60 years, François Greffe has not merely witnessed the development of design law, but has been one of its main protagonists, with the recognition of his commitment to the entire design industry extending far beyond the boundaries of the intellectual property world.

It was therefore logical, legitimate, if not expected, that a book should pay tribute to him. This has now been done with these Mélanges, which bring together authors from all over Europe (France, Benelux, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Poland and Russia) to discuss the issues of multiple protection and multiple forms, both in the light of current case law and in the light of the forthcoming European reform of design law.
