IIC - International Review of Intellectual Property and Competition Law

ISSN: 0018-9855 (Print) 2195-0237 (Online)


The International Review of Intellectual Property and Competition Law (IIC), tracks worldwide developments in intellectual property and competition law, presenting the finest academic research in these fields from a European legal perspective.

(2)   Current legal developments occurring in Europe are examined in such a way that the non-European reader can appreciate their significance.

IIC offers a platform for opposing ideas, providing for rich debate on a host of current IP and competition law topics.

The value of IIC for European specialists, going beyond other “European” journals, rests in our treatment of non-European topics combined with our illuminating analyses of European legal developments as seen within a global legal context.
