Through the scholarship it publishes, the Berkeley Technology Law Journal - formerly the High Technology Law Journal - has tracked the evolution of technology and intellectual property law for more than two decades. In keeping with this tradition, the Annual Review of Law & Technology, now in its ninth volume, catalogs the year's most significant developments in a wide range of topic areas, which this year include intellectual property, cyberlaw, constitutional law, and telecommunications. The summaries and analyses presented here aim to provide practitioners, judges, policymakers, scholars, and students a concise and thorough encapsulation of the year in technology and intellectual property law.

This year, the Annual Review includes twenty-four Notes. While most follow the traditional case note model, others provide more broadly focused legislative, regulatory, and policy discussions. Moreover, thirty-two Additional Developments summarize other noteworthy cases and developments of the past year.
