The note under the heading is incorrect; it should read "incorporated business associations."  We will correct it.  Thanks for reporting the error.

Under the heading "Stock companies" there is usage note: "Here are entered works on unincorporated business associations whose capital is divided into transferable shares". My guess so far and our cataloging practice was it would be an incorporated company. In Class schedules, for exemple in Polish
law: KKP1050 is under the caption "Stock companies. Incorporated business associations" so it rather assumes a stock company is an incorporated business association. Which option is true? 

Thank you for your comments.
