I need to dig out the original agreements and read them through closely but surely this isn't legal?
It is, if you were stupid enough to sign an agreement to that effect without reading the whole thing in full and very carefully.
Good mandate for most things but remember, a contract must be enforceable in law. For example, anyone who's signed a certain very large games company's publishing deal has signed a publishing deal they do not have to obey.. It is not legally enforceable anywhere in the world, and especially France! ( there's your clue). Contract law works under elements of reasonable treatment and many clauses can be challenged. This would be one.
