IP Theory, founded in 2010, is an online, peer-edited, open-access intellectual property law publication. In 2013, Emory University Law School joined as a partner of the publication. It is neither law journal nor blog; it is a different sort of publication designed to occupy a niche between the two. It serves as a new forum for essays and opinion pieces that are more concise (and more lightly footnoted) than typical law review articles, as well as book and other literature reviews.
