IP Theory, founded in 2010 at Indiana University Maurer School of Law, is an online, peer-edited, open-access intellectual property law publication. In 2013, Emory Law joined as a partner of the publication. Neither law journal nor blog, it occupies a niche between the two. It serves as a new forum for essays and opinion pieces that are more concise than typical law journal articles, as well as book and other literature reviews. IPT »
