Family Name

By Anonymous writer - Glossary

A family name identifies a physical person.

According to Article L.711-4, if a sign violates a third party’s personality rights relating particularly to that person’s family name, first name, nickname or image, that sign cannot be adopted.

In addition, a name can be used as a trademark.

Doing this however is not without certain risks such as the eventual loss of control over its commercial use or even a possible conflict with similar third party names.
