On 29 June 2011, the French Supreme Court approved the seizure of 600,000 electronic files during an antitrust investigation in the generic drugs sector, including personal privacy data and legally privileged documents. The inspectors conducted a quick search to identify elements within the scope of the warrant and then proceeded to copy all emails relating to them. According to the Court, there has been no infringement of fundamental rights since (i) the files were unbreakable and their authenticity must be guaranteed, (ii) investigators are bound by professional secrecy, (iii) legally privileged and private documents cannot be used in the proceedings, and (iv) protected data shall be returned to the undertaking.
