[Updated] Congratulations to the authors of the following IP blogs that were recognized by the ABA Journal for being the best ones there were in 2010, even if they misdesignated one of them:
- Copyrights and Campaigns
- IP Kat
- IP Watchdog
- The TTABlog®
- Technology and Marketing Law Blog
- THR, Esq.
The last one, written by Eric Goldman and Venkat Balasubramani, was listed with the “Legal Tech” blogs. You might think this implies that the editors didn’t even really read the damned blogs, but you’d be wrong. I’m sure they just wanted to spread the wealth a bit and make the buckets about the same size. So they put Eric in the bucket that seemed to match the blog title. Similarly, THR, Esq., by Eriq Gardner, is listed as “for fun,” but I count that as an IP blog too, as most of today’s entertainment-related legal issues are more or less in that category.
No, really, I’m sure. It’s not like last year’s ABA Blawg 100 train wreck: These are very good blogs (well, there’s one on the list I’ve never looked it, but the rest I know are great), and Eric and Venkat’s three-peat is particularly impressive given how crowded this field has gotten. You should read these every day and tell me what they say.
And though it’s off-topic, I can’t not mention the incredible run by Scott Greenfield — yup, named again in criminal law — whose blog is so good that he can say whatever he wants about the “beauty pageant” and still get named over and over.
Nice work! No, really.
