Review of 2013

As the year of 2013 comes to a close, I thought it'd be time to give some information about IP Iustitia to my readers and anyone who might be interested in some figures. This blog has been a great way for me to engage in the IP law community, and I'm grateful for the moderate success I have had over the majority of the year.

In under a year of operation the blog has had over 10,000 visits, which went over and beyond any of my expectations. Thank you to those who've visited and enjoyed my work, and hopefully things will improve even more as we move forward. The site also migrated to its current domain (www.ipiustitia.com), which I hope you've firmly bookmarked!

Feedback about the blog and its contents has been almost unanimously positive, but do send me an email should you have any thoughts or even ideas on what to write about. Even though the blog is a one-man operation (for now), community participation is paramount and always appreciated.

The blog's Twitter account also has been a success, with 167 followers as of right now. If you have not followed the blog on Twitter, please do so and you'll receive direct links to all new articles the moment they're published. You can also use this as an alternate method to contact me with any questions, IP law related or not, should you want to do so.

In terms of developments in the area, the year has been eventful. The Myriad Genetics decision in the US Supreme Court was one which was anticipated by many, and one which this writer is awaiting to emerge from the Australian Full Federal Court. The Google Books decision, which barely fit into 2013, was monumental as well. In addition the year has been filled with law reviews galore, with the United Kingdom and Australia looking ahead, while Ireland flashed its copyright future in its released review. Many things have happened, and looking at 2014 one cannot be but hopeful as to the future of copyright especially.

I'd like to wish you all a great coming year, and hope that 2014 will be just as good, or even better, than 2013 has been for you! The blog will continue as usual once the new year comes along, firmly going towards it's first anniversary in March. A big thank you to all of my regular and sporadic readers - you are the ones I do this for at the end of the day.
