Website is copyright work

How websites are protected is a matter of speculation, or so I tell people. Obviously there might be several copyright works involved, and perhaps also database right (if that counts for anything). Now we have high-level confirmation that copyright will protect a website in France, with a decision of the Cour de Cassation reported by the blog. accused private-club of infringing copyright in the site architecture: the defendant argued that there was insufficient originality to sustain the claim, with which lower courts agreed but the Cour de Cassation did not. The matter has been remanded to the cour d'appel, Versailles.
