INTRODUCTION TO CYBARIS TM


                              KENNETH L. PORT


   Welcome to the inaugural issue of CybarisTM, An Intellectual Property Law
Review. This law review is innovative in several ways. We publish law review
articles on any and all aspects of intellectual property in electronic format. This
allows us to make the articles a dialogue rather than a dead drop. Following
each article appears a comment box. Readers are encouraged to leave comments.
Authors are encouraged to respond to the comments. The CybarisTM editorial
board manages the comments to assure quality control.

   We will also publish a videotape recording of each author defending their
thesis. These defenses are about 15 minutes in length. We allow the author to
express themselves in person as well as in print and in comment form.

    The intent is to highlight the author so that the author comes alive for the
reader. Too often, when we read law review articles, we have no idea what the
person who wrote the piece sounds like or looks like. CybarisTM changes this.
With CybarisTM, the author comes alive and the reader is able to understand more
of what motivates the author and what their background might be. Some authors
have very unique and interesting careers that got them to the point of writing their
article. Without the video and/or the comments, a reader would not be able to
understand these critical background facts.

    I am deeply indebted to Ms. Jennell Bilek and Mr. Ryan Smith for their many
efforts at seeing this journal launched. They have served as the initial Editors-in-
Chief of CybarisTM. They will both graduate in May of 2010. They have been
tireless and relentless in their pursuit to create CybarisTM and to see that a very
high quality issue came forth. I am very proud to say that I think they have
accomplished their goals. The entire staff of CybarisTM and I would also like to
express our appreciation to Lindsay Matts. Ms. Matts has worked very hard to
create the web site and videos, link it all together and, most importantly, assure
that it all works.

    The CybarisTM staff is also appreciative of the William Mitchell College of
Law Faculty for recognizing the innovative nature of this journal and for voting to
create it.  Without the Faculty support, of course, this journal would be
impossible. I am also appreciative of Mr. Steve Hickman's input and creation of
the Intellectual Property Law Series, which CybarisTM replaces. It was Mr.
Hickman's idea to videotape authors.
