Legal blogging is often referred to as content marketing.  But watching the depth and breath of the law blog posts on our network, I continue to see legal blogging as something so much more important. Not only has legal blogging democratized legal publishing, but legal blogging represents a body of secondary law.  I was speaking to a communications and outreach person with a major law school today regarding a project or two.

The Right to Repair movement got state legislatures to consider more than a dozen Right to Repair bills last year, and have made great strides in the EU and elsewhere, but for every two steps forward they manage, they're forced a step or two back by giant corporate lobbyists, led by Apple, who want to ensure that third parties can't repair products, and that a manufacturer's decision it's time to retire a product from the market won't be challenged by independent repair depots.
