About This Site
The bIPlog was produced by a class at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism that brought together students from journalism, law, computer science and information management and systems to create a Weblog on intellectual property issues.
The Weblog grew out of a meeting in April 2002 of editors from online and traditional media publications, entrepreneurs at technology and information companies, and others who were asked to critique the new media and online publishing courses offered at the journalism school.
The common sentiment from those in attendance was that journalism schools needed to do much more to prepare students for the new world of publishing over a digital network. In particular they emphasized the huge battle brewing over copyright and other intellectual property issues - a fight that would have profound implications for the publishing business, technological innovation and the public’s access to information. And they said journalism classes must be more experimental - adopting new and different forms of online media, such as the Weblog, to deliver news and information.
