About this series
In each volume of the LIDC Contributions on Antitrust Law, Intellectual Property and Unfair Competition, two topics are discussed, one focusing on competition law, the other on intellectual property and/or unfair competition.
Practitioners and academics from different industrial countries contribute national reports on each topic, followed by an analysis and a comparison of the respective national situations as well as an international report. The national reports include essential and hard-to-find case law analysis. The common trends and principles identified in the international reports serve as a basis for more general recommendations, some of which have been presented to national and international authorities.
The series is produced by the International League of Competition Law (LIDC), an association that brings together national associations for antitrust law, intellectual property and unfair competition law. Created in 1930 by a German lawyer who subsequently became Professor of Law at the University of Saint Louis in the United States, the LIDC has a long standing reputation for scientific exploration, debate and work.
