Our missions, our vocation
Creators or editors of digital works, APP has been assisting you since 1982.
In practice, although copyright protects your works from their creation, it is difficult to prove your rights and their infringement.
That is why the APP:
The APP is also a permanent member of WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office, Switzerland) and CSPLA (Superior Council of Literary and Artistic Property of the Ministry of Culture, France).
Confidentiality is very important for the APP which respects the will of its Members to protect their private information and their deposits.
In order to preserve the trust of its Members, the APP has implemented a confidentiality policy defined in the APP General Regulations and the Legal Notices on the website.
A team of specialists
As our businesses require both technical and legal expertise, our teams are made up of legal professionals, development engineers and experts with both legal and technical skills.
Our multidisciplinary experts are at your disposal to assist you in the protection of your portfolio of creations and to answer your legal, patrimonial, operational and commercial needs.
InterDeposit, 6 years of R & D in the service of proof
Since its creation, the APP has adopted a prospectivist approach in order to anticipate changes in business practices such as the digitization of procedures. The APP wondered how to dematerialise the filing process on the probation chain while guaranteeing the same level of reliability as that of the physical deposit.
The InterDeposit platform was designed in particular to respond to this challenge by providing APP members with innovative and secure solutions with the assurance that the processes are tamper-proof and can not be manipulated.
Thus, the InterDeposit software solution gives you an additional level of confidence and guarantees the confidentiality of data exchanges and the data itself.
Our Members safely deposit within the platform that meets the requirements of compliance with the General Safety Regulations (RGS).
