The 6th annual search is now on for the top 100 blawgs of 2012. Now, we are not going to twist anybody’s arm, but if any readers would like to file a Blawg Amici brief on behalf of Patentology, submissions are due by 7 pm (US) ET on 7 September 2012.
More information, and the Blawg 100 Amici submission form, can be found on the ABA Journal web site.
MORE ABOUT THE BLAWG 100Although popularity is not the main criterion for making the Blawg 100 list, once it has been compiled the ABA Journal conducts a popular vote in order to ‘rank’ the blawgs in each category. In 2011, the categories were:
- trial practice;
- for fun;
- IP law;
- labor and employment;
- criminal justice;
- business law;
- torts; and
- legal technology.
Further information about the 2011 Blawg 100, including details of the blawgs in all categories, and their performance in the popular vote, can be found on the ABA Journal web site.
While it seems certain that IP Watchdog and Patently-O will once again grab gold and silver in the IP Law category this year, the bronze medal spot will be up for grabs which (based upon Australia’s performance in the London Olympics) is a perfectly respectable achievement in an extremely competitive world of high-quality IP law blogs!
