The International Review of Intellectual Property and Competition Law (IIC) is a peer-reviewed academic journal published by the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition. Founded in 1970, IIC is one of the most respected journals in the fields of intellectual property and competition law, presenting contributions with the highest standards of academic research.

IIC publishes research on the most significant developments in IP and competition law from around the world. Our aim is to provide a European perspective on these important topics to an international audience.

The journal adopts a multidisciplinary approach and offers a platform for opposing ideas, providing for rich debate on a host of current IP and competition law issues.

The journal’s central feature is high-quality authored materials including articles, editorials, opinions, reports, case notes and book reviews. We also translate and publish the leading decisions from jurisdictions worldwide, including many non-mainstream jurisdictions.

The quality of IIC is grounded on a more than 50-year history of publication. Each volume builds on this tradition of academic excellence. Our established foundation provides a unique platform upon which our readers are able to research and explore emerging developments in IP and competition law in the decades to come.
