Our March issue is a special issue dedicated to intellectual property protection in Africa. Our own Marius Schneider has collected and edited several contributions that explore a number of topical issues across the entire spectrum of IP: from plant varieties and food security, to utility model certificates in Kenya, copyright law in South Africa, traditional knowledge in Kenya, and much more. A great thank you to all our contributors and to Marius for putting together an exciting and informative issue that we believe will be of great interest to our readers all around the world!
If you are not a subscriber, please note that all the articles of the special issue are freely available - we hope that this will encourage further research and engagement with the issues, opportunities and challenges discussed in these contributions. Of course, we welcome submissions from authors who wish to develop further analyses of IP in the African context.
