I am no where close to a lawyer, but I remember reading that English (and American) law is based on British Common Law. Whilst French law is derived from the Nepolionic Code and quite different.
I meant that copyright law between the US and UK is similar. Even though we're both in France both the bar and I run UK companies because most our our clients are English. The rail company has divisions in multiple countries but it was the UK branch that sent out the email, so I think it's safe to say UK copyright law is what would be in play.
