Antitrust Quick Chart added to Antitrust & Trade Regulation Integrated Library and Trade Regulation Reporter-Internet

An Antitrust Quick Chart on anticompetitive practices connects subscribers with the leading precedents, helpful commentary, and recent cases relating to 25 anticompetitive practices governed by federal antitrust law. The “Antitrust Quick Chart—Conduct Prohibited Under Federal Antitrust Laws” includes the name of the anticompetitive practice (e.g., price fixing, resale price maintenance, exclusive dealing), a citation and link to the explanation paragraph in the Trade Regulation Reporter, a citation and link to the relevant section in Antitrust Laws by Areeda and Hovenkamp, a link to the applicable statute, and a list of the leading cases, with links to full text. The chart is located on IntelliConnect in the Antitrust & Trade Regulation practice area and under Practice Tools.

Product enhancement: Tax Planning content added to Business Organizations Law Library

In order to provide a more complete package of resources, tax planning content has been added to the Business Organizations Law Library.

These resources include the Limited Liability Company Guide, Partnership Tax Planning and Practice and the S Corporation Guide as well as several practice tools to assist with analysis in selecting the appropriate business entity. This content complements analytic titles that include Bromberg and Ribstein on Partnership and Drafting Limited Liability Operating Agreements by John Cunningham.

NOTE TO CURRENT BUSINESS ORGANIZATIONS AND CORPORATION LAW LIBRARY SUBSCRIBERS: Because the practice area listing has been amended to separate Business Organizations and Corporation Law, it may be necessary to update any links from your firm’s intranet to the new practice areas. In addition, you may need to update any customized Practice Area sets by creating a new set for the Business Organizations content and a separate one for the Corporation Law content or selecting both under one Practice Area set.

Product alert: CCH Internal Revenue Code summer edition delayed until Supreme Court’s decision on Affordable Care Act

To ensure that our customers receive the most accurate information, the Summer 2012 edition of the CCH Internal Revenue Code will be printed after the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on the Affordable Care Act. The Court is expected to issue its decision on the Affordable Care Act in June, and we anticipate shipping the Summer 2012 CCH Internal Revenue Code in July.

RBsource recently reviewed in Technology Law News

RBsource is a powerful new online tool based on our industry-standard Securities Redbook that re-imagines securities law research, making it more efficient and accurate by bringing together laws, rules, regulations and forms with related SEC guidance materials including C&DI, SEC rule-making releases, and staff bulletins in one convenient interface.

Sean Doherty, Technology Editor of Law Technology News, recently reviewed RBsource and was impressed with what it does:

“It was hard for me to believe the new online service would make it easier for me to access U.S. securities law and commentary than the handy one-volume, loose-leaf desk reference where content is accessed in sections marked by color-coded tabs. The Redbook, however, is a bimonthly publication that is updated six times per year. So if your practice relies on the immediacy of information, you will want access to RBsource.”

For more information about RBsource, contact your Wolters Kluwer account representative or visit https://rbsource.wolterskluwerlb.com/rbsource to sign up for a 14-day free trial.

IP Law Daily is a new daily email service that will provide the latest case law and statutory and rulemaking developments in all areas of intellectual property including copyright, trademark, patent, technology/internet law and trade secrets. Included with news stories will be links to the full text of cases, statutory and regulatory materials. Stories are archived on IntelliConnect for searching and browsing.

Take advantage of the 14-day free trial to experience the value of expertly assembled updates as well as the confidence of having the latest developments pushed wherever you are via email, RSS feed, and mobile.

Training Tip for IntelliConnect

Where can I go to stay abreast of the effective dates of provisions within the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (P.L. 111-148) and Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 (P.L. 111-152)?

Check and see if Health Reform Calendar Creator is part of your IntelliConnect content.

The Health Reform Calendar Creator provides a Health Reform Effective Date Lookup that allows you to view effective dates filtered by topics impacted by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (P.L. 111-148) and Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 (P.L. 111-152).
