Cahiers de propriété intellectuelle


Under the supervision of Laurent Carrière, the intellectual property (IP) law journal Cahiers de propriété intellectuelle (CPI) (vol. 25, no 3) published a 76th issue, commemorating its 25th anniversary. The Cahiers de propriété intellectuelle is the sole publication in intellectual property law to be published entirely in French in North America.

At the reception organized by the publisher to commemorate this unique event, Laurent Carrière, editor-in-chief, spoke a few words:

“One of the characteristics of the CPI is its openness.

Its purview is not limited to the usual intellectual property topics (patents-trademarks-designs-copyright), but also related topics, such as information technology (cyberspace, right to privacy, advertising) and related business law (licensing, competition, trade secrets): the 763 articles published in those fields demonstrate the journal’s true eclecticism.

Authors who come from all walks of life, from around the world and from different environments: universities, private practice, in-house, collective societies, arts and techniques: 491 different authors (including students) can attest to this. The same representation is observed at the editorial level, both national and international.
We will remember the special issues of such themes as journalism, the amendments of 1997 and 2012 of the Copyright Act, intellectual property in the world of cuisine, the Halloween special, orphan works; not to mention legal deposit and moral rights – heavy lifters, now undeniable references.

In other words, 76 issues for 18 742 pages of sheer pleasure.”
