Given a Banach space E, let us denote by Max(E) the largest operator space structure on E. Recently Paulsen-Pisier and, independently, Junge proved that for any Banach spaces E, F, S0013091500023816_inline1 isomorphically where S0013091500023816_inline2 and S0013091500023816_inline3 respectively denote the Haagerup tensor product and the spatial tensor product of operator spaces. In this paper we show that, in general, this equality does not hold completely isomorphically.
