According to the French civil procedure rules, the party seeking an order for a saisie-contrefaçon (an ex-parte order to obtain evidence of infringement) has no obligation to put forward any and all defences and arguments that the defendant may raise on the merits; it should only disclose those legal and actual circumstances which might have an influence on the decision to grant the saisie order.
