Id-dritt Launch of Volume XXVI

Since 1944 the Malta Law Student Society (GHSL) has been launching the Id-Dritt law journal  every year. The 26th Volume of Malta's law journal Id-Dritt inlcudes several articles written by different legal professionals about various legal fields.

The Id-dritt Launch of Volume XXVI started with introduction speeches by the Publications Officer Sarah Pace Warrington and Head Editor Ariane Aquilina. Panel discussion speakers in the second part of the Id-dritt Launch of Volume XXVI were Dr Anna Vella, Minister Owen Bonnici, and Judge Giovanni Bonello. The main topic discussed during the Id-dritt Launch of Volume XXVI was the Introduction of the New Drug Law Amendments. This new law is expected to impact Maltese society in the way drug addiction and drug dissemination is dealt with at law.

Dr Terence Cassar, who specializes on Intellectual Property and Remote Gaming law authored an article entitled “Character Merchandizing under Maltese Law: Patchwork Solutions”. This article discusses how certain specific torts and intellectual property rights may be adapted and used in order to protect against the misappropriation of character by way of a merchandising activity.
