NIPCLAW - First UK Barrister's Blog?

Thanks to Scott Vine's Information Overlord, I've learned that there's a new IP and technology blog on the English side of the Atlantic called NIPCLAW.  Written by barrister John Lambert, the blog "contains news and comment on English, European and overseas intellectual property,technology, media and entertainment and competition law" and "is intended to update and supplement his chambers websites at www.nipclaw.com and www.ipit-update.com."  What strikes me about this blog is that it's written by a barrister (rather than solicitor(s)), making it the first UK barrister's blog I've seen.  Will be interesting to see if other barristers follow suit, as the recent relaxation in certain sectors allowing public access directly to barristers (rather than via solicitors) is likely to result in more public-facing marketing initiatives by barristers than was previously the case.

Hi, just came across your blog. I enjoyed it ...most informative.

I've been reviewing other legal blogs and I book marking the standouts.

Well, needless to say, I have bookmarked your blawg.

I also write a blawg. Actually, it's more of a collection of Internet Tech tips/observations to inform legal web site owners how to achieve improved search engine standings while avoiding the many Internet scams.

My blawg legal advice library site is still very much a work in progress. My legal directory San Diego attorneys site is the flagship of our 15 legal directory sites that cover California, Texas and Las Vegas.

Please visit and check them out if you have the time

MORE IMPORTANTLY . . .I have been watching the news about Hurricane Katrina as I am sure you have been too. My heart goes out to these people and I pray they get the assistance they need as fast as humanly possible.

What makes me sick are the emails I have been receiving over the past few days from people "claiming" to help. Maybe they are sincere maybe not. I don't know.

If You Want To Help the Hurricane Efforts

Here's two links to legitimate organizations to donate your money too if you want to help.

FEMA - http://www.fema.gov
Red Cross - http://www.redcross.org

Feel free to pass this message on to someone else.

Help someone and donate what you can today.
