About Cybaris®

Cybaris®, an Intellectual Property Law Review, publishes non-student articles and student comments on all areas of intellectual property law, including patents, copyrights, trademarks, licensing and related transactional matters.

The student-edited law review is published twice annually and members of the William Mitchell Intellectual Property Institute’s Board of Advisors provide critical oversight to ensure the articles are of the highest academic quality. This combined effort makes Cybaris® a valuable resource for legal practitioners, scholars, and lawmakers.

Volume 6, Issue 1 tackles the age-old relationship between copyright law, and an artist’s work. Although Minnesota is home to one of the nation’s largest arts communities, many local artists find copyright protection to be good in theory but useless in application. Legal minds across the country, working in a variety of arts-focused industries, will contribute novel ideas to this close-to-home dilemma.

Cybaris® is continually looking for new ways to reach readers. Social media, such as Twitter, LinkedIn, Google Hangouts, will allow the law review to reach new audiences in an interactive, approachable manner. Overall, the goal is to make Cybaris® a dialogue on contemporary issues in intellectual property law.
