The founding of the sic! Foundation for intellectual property, information and competition law.
sic! – the journal for intellectual property, information and fair competition law has been published since 1997 and is an indispensable journal for the professional community. It is financed by the IPI and the Swiss International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (AIPPI Switzerland) as well as 14 other professional organisations. Its content is the responsibility of an independent editorial board.
The IPI and AIPPI Switzerland have founded the sic! Foundation for intellectual property, information and competition law. It was founded on 1st of July 2018 and has its headquarters in Bern. The purpose of the foundation is to share information and foster discussion about Swiss intellectual property law, information law and competition law, as well as related legal fields including regional and international legal developments relevant to Switzerland. This is primarily achieved through the publication of the sic! journal, a topical, high quality, academic publication on the fields of law concerned. The journal’s content will continue to be the responsibility of the editorial board, which acts as an advisory board to the foundation board. The foundation can take further measures and participate in measures taken by third parties if they serve to achieve the purpose of the foundation.
