The IPKat has just received some excellent news from his colleagues and friends at the Max Planck Institute for Intellectual Property, Competition and Tax Law, Munich. This good news reads as follows:
"We would like to announce the launch of our eJournal Max Planck Institute for Intellectual Property, Competition & Tax Law Research Paper Series on the Social Science Research Network (SSRN) and its forthcoming first issue.
The Max Planck Institute for Intellectual Property, Competition & Tax Law Research Paper Series is a source for research papers authored by the MPI academic staff (eds. Prof. Josef Drexl, Exec. Dir.; Prof. Reto M. Hilty, Dir.; Prof. Kai Konrad, Dir.; and Prof. Wolfgang Schoen, Dir.).
Papers cover topics on intellectual property law (copyright, patent, trademark law), competition law (law of unfair competition, antitrust law) as well as tax law, corporate law, capital market law and accounting.
To access all of the papers in this series, please use the following URL:The IPKat is delighted with this, but Merpel -- who only has a Kat-sized brain -- wishes that the Institute could have come up with a shorter and more memorable title: IPeMax, perhaps?
If you would like to be included in our subscriber list, please indicate so by returning this e-mail to Sylvia Kortuem until 20 March 2009".
