Have German Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Dear Customer, thank you for using Just Answer.
For a pure non-disclosure agreement, it doesn't matter whether German or French law is preferable, because the secrecy agreement is freedom of contract.
The difficulty is to create the contract as tailored as possible, because each case raises specific technical, economic and legal issues.
License agreements in the area of copyright law is French law to prefer, because there the author is generally preferred. This applies also to designs because whatever copyrights associated with designs in France.
I hope I was able to help.

Is this true also for intellectual property that French law would be preferred over German law for a non-dsiclosure agreement?
