Scent... Copyrightable?

Wed, 27 Jun 2006 15:52:00 EST

An unprecedented case in French court of appeals last February held that scents are qualified for protection under copyright laws. In L'Oreal vs. Bellure N.V., Bellure was held liable for copying a number of L'Oreal's fragrances. This lead the way for another such case in the Dutch Supreme Court earlier this month where L'Oreal sought to disgorge profits from Kecofa's knockoff scents, and won. Should scents really be considered works of art, do their creators orchestrate scents with 'notes' of diverse fragrances?
