The Buffalo Intellectual Property Law Journal (BIPLJ) is dedicated to presenting issues in Patent Law, Copyrights, Trademarks, and related Intellectual Property areas. As a premier research institution and the leading public law school in the Northeast, the State University of New York Buffalo Law School provides a rigorous forum for multidisciplinary analysis of evolving legal issues affecting emerging technologies and the creative arts. The BIPLJ publishes scholarly works from leading academics and practicing attorneys, as well as student notes.

The Founding of the Buffalo Intellectual Property Law Journal

One cold December day, in 1999, a group of students met in a drafty, dimly lit hallway to initiate the first student-founded law journal at the University at Buffalo School of Law. To make the dream a reality took months of organization, planning, dedication, and the work of many hands. The Journal gratefully acknowledges the tireless efforts of those who started it all.
