Legal Tech Companies Should Contribute to Legal Journalism

Bob Ambrogi made clear in his talk last week that the future of legal journalism is founded on law blogs.  Law blogs whose content is aggregated and curated by LexBlog into a meaningful network of content and contributors segregated by channel, industries and topics. And which content is distributed via the Web, email and social media.  Rather than these lawyers and law firms hiring public relations and marketing agencies to get them in the news, these law firms and lawyers are creating ...

Can I Make My Own Audio Book for an Authors Book

I'd like to make an audio book based off of a book that I like with my own voice and post it to YouTube. Legal? If not, can I make a podcast of me analyzing the book after I read the book first? Fair use. Not charging for this either.

"A few hundred people lined a two-lane county highway near the church, hoping for a glimpse of Mr. Trump from the roadside grass or from the cemetery across the street."

Woman who faked pregnancy, promised adoption indicted on nine felony counts

Faking a pregnancy doesn’t appear to be against the law. But using a false pretense to convince a potential adoptive family to buy baby clothes, photographs and meals – those incidents could land a Virginia woman in jail. A grand jury in Scott County, Virginia, returned a nine-count felony indictment against Elizabeth Jones, the woman who is accused of convincing Matt and Laura Trayte from Southern California that she was pregnant and they could adopt her baby. The crime in each count is listed ...

"Omar says the 'hope and change' offered by Barack Obama was a mirage."

"Recalling the 'caging of kids' at the U.S.-Mexico border and the 'droning of countries around the world' on Obama’s watch, she argues that the Democratic president operated within the same fundamentally broken framework as his Republican successor. 'We can’t be only upset with Trump. … His policies are bad, but many of the people who came before him also had really bad policies. They just were more polished than he was,' Omar says. 'And that’s not what we should be looking for anymore. We don’t...

SEO Efforts a Bust? Here are 10 Reasons Why

Sexual harassment victims can still deduct legal fees

Part of today's International Women's Day celebrations are for the continuing employment advances by women.

While all clothing sheds fibers when washed, synthetic particles — unlike wool and cotton — don't biodegrade. Most conventional washing-machine filters aren't designed to trap such tiny particles....
