Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

Paul the Octopus dies

with one comment

This is really (heart)breaking antitrust news. Paul the Octopus died yesterday at the Sea Life Centre in Oberhausen.

This is dramatic news for the competition community: precisely yesterday I saw that the market intelligence company Mlex had very recently referred to Paul as Damien Neven´s replacement (see the great picture above, extracted from the October-December 2010 issue of Mlex magazine).

The aquarium has announced that Paul´s body is in cold storage while decisions are made on “how best to mark his passing”. Paul will be given his own small burial plot and a permanent shrine would be erected in his memory”.  For a modest idea from chillingcompetition as to how Paul could better rest in peace, see here
