Validité des licences de logiciel sous plastique en droit français et comparé

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientific

Abstract

The development of 'shrinkwrap licences' as an effective means to mass-market software has,oddly enough, generated no debate in France. Several foreign examples on the contrary tend to show that such discussion exists elsewhere in Europe and also in the United States and in Singapore. The article aims at reviewing relevant foreign decisions so as to draw inferences from their common characteristics. The conclusion of the article sets forth the validity of such licenses, but under conditions which need be respected so as to prevent judicial sanctions, judges being commonly concerned with the protection of weak parties.
