Watch on


In our first episode, we explore the oldest intellectual property law in the world and we explain why copyrights of Auguste Renoir will be protected at least until the year 2043, while copyrights of other major impressionists already expired. We show you the building and the room where the Paris Convention for the Protection of Industrial Property—the first international treaty on patent and trademark matters—was signed in 1883. The first part of our boat trip concludes near the Tour Eiffel, while uncovering some intellectual property mysteries of this Gustave Eiffel’s masterpiece.
