The final list is determined by ABA Journal staff and, while it is not a ‘popularity contest’, nominations are accepted in the form of ‘friend-of-the-blawg briefs’, a.k.a. the Blawg 100 Amici.
Nominations are open now, and close at 5pm US Eastern Time on 8 August 2014.
The decision to nominate a blawg is, of course, entirely personal. But if you are a regular Patentology reader, and you find the blog interesting and useful, then I would really appreciate you putting in a good word! Nominations can be made via the Blawg 100 Amici submission page.
Of course, if you do not want to nominate Patentology, there are many other worthy legal blogs out there. You might, for example, want to check out last year's finalists in the IP law category:
- Gene Quinn's IP Watchdog (Twitter: @IPWatchdog);
- Kevin Noonan and Donald Zuhn's Patent Docs (Twitter: @PatentDocs);
- Rebecca Tushnet's 43(B)log (Twitter: @rtushnet);
- The Hollywood Reporter's Hollywood, Esq (Twitter: @thresq); and
- The Biederman Blog, written by Students at Southwestern Law School's Biederman Entertainment and Media Law Institute (Twitter: @Biedermanblog)
