It’s time to call it a wrap on another week. But as we do so, we wrap up as usual with one more Top 10. Though I linked to this in the other post, be sure to check out this week’s LXBN Leaders profile on the work being done by Bradley Arant Boult Cummings with their blogs. Great stuff. Total posts on the LexBlog Network today: 202.

Wow, it was quite the week for launches on the LexBlog Network, as we have five new publications joining us. They look great, and they’re from some very impressive firms. Let’s jump into it.

  • First up, we have a new one from a firm that’s been very successful in blogging—it’s Patent 213 from Bradley Arant Boult Cummings. As Zosha covered in our LXBN Leaders profile today, they’ve done an excellent job with their blog network so it’s exciting to see the latest addition.
  • Next up, we have a new foreign language blog on the LexBlog Network: it’s the Conseiller de l’employeur au Québec from McCarthy Tetrault. This, the firm’s fifteenth blog, covers labor and employment law in Quebec.
  • Nutter McClennen & Fish blog network just keeps on growing as they add another one this week on the form of Generation-to-Generation. Partner Julia Satti Cosentino serves as editor on this blog, which aims to be a valuable resource on trusts and estates.
  • Lowenstein Sandler is another firm continuing to grow out its digital publishing efforts. Their latest Global Capital Markets Litigation, is off to a very good start. In their own words, the blog aims to educate professionals about complex commercial litigation and arbitration, securities and structured finance litigation, M&A disputes, secured and unsecured financing matters and bankruptcy-related litigation.
  • I’ve mentioned it before, but I think blogs are at their best when they combine two interesting niches. Take for example, the latest from BakerHostetler—it’s not just about copyright law, but about copyright law issues on evolving technology. It’s called Copyright, Content, and Platforms and I can’t wait to see what they do with it.

Checking in a little late here, but we still have today’s Top 10. As could be expected, there’s still a lot of commentary on the Privacy Shield. Also, some great law firm marketing and management stuff today, too. Total posts on the LexBlog Network today: 198.

In the big legal news of the week, the United States and EU have reached a new deal on international data transfers—called the Privacy Shield, it’s in effect version 2 of the Safe Harbor. Zosha has the basics of it today, and how it’s already under attack, while Tanya Forsheit does a deep analyticak dive. Total posts on the LexBlog Network today: 189.

I think the Internet of Things and the looming privacy implications is one of the more interesting legal issues out there today. On that note, we have excellent posts with recent news in the area. Over on LXBN, Zosha writes on whether or not increased exposure to the justice system in pop culture will lead to more cameras in courts. Total posts on the LexBlog Network today: 195.

February already? Whew. Time absolutely flies. But though February is here, we still have some interesting looks back at 2015—one being Michelle O’Neil’s look at the big wins for LGBT rights last year. Total posts on the LexBlog Network today: 211.

Whew, Friday’s here already—and, amazingly, as we wrap up for the day it’s still light out here in Seattle. Even though it’s chilly, spring is coming. On the LexBlog Network today, I continue to be impressed by the interesting writing Rich Beem does on patents. He has a good one on Legos today.
