The French Supreme Court confirmed that a writ of summons for infringement of intellectual property rights must determine and specify the elements for which protection is sought, as well as the allegedly infringing acts. A writ of summons, such as that in the case at hand, which does not sufficiently describe or identify the work that was allegedly infringed must therefore be annulled.

A full summary of this case has been published on Kluwer IP Law
