MaCCI Law & Economics Conference 2019: Intellectual Property Proceedings

The 2019 MaCCI Law & Economics Conference took place on 14 and 15 November at ZEW. For this year’s topic “Intellectual Property Proceedings” we were excited to welcome Gary Moss (EIP Europe LLP, London, UK) and Nathan Wajsman (Chief Economist at the EU Intellectual Property Office, Alicante, Spain) as keynote speakers. The topic of the conference was further approached from different angles by four panels, covering trade secrets, injunctions, and FRAND licensing (FRAND = fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory). Participants and speakers came from academia (LMU Munich, Bilkent University, University of Essex, Tilburg University, Tel Aviv University), industry (Nokia, Ericsson, BASF, Audi), and public institutions (EU Intellectual Property Office, Landgericht Mannheim, ZEW Mannheim, MPI Munich).
