Idea-expression dichotomy in Ecuador

Sam and Daisy, two young French artists, started negotiations with Cherryland, a well-known Ecuadorian company that organizes outdoors activities.

The parties held several meetings in Quito and after analysing the whole portfolio, Cherryland’s representatives selected eight of the plays, which were all previously registered before the Ecuadorian Intellectual Property Office (IEPI). But finally, the Latin-American company only bought the rights of three of them and asked to adapt another one for a new project.
