Article: Blogosphere Aboil

Lawyers who blog will be interested in this ABA newsletter article entitled “Blogosphere Aboil.” It describes how the state of New York may designate lawyer blogging as advertising, with consequences that go beyond the state: 

The storm was set off by a proposal that “computer-accessed communications” such as blogs be included in New York’s definition of legal advertising, and therefore require state scrutiny. The proposal, by a committee created by the state’s Administrative Board of Courts, also suggests the state code of professional responsibility extend court jurisdiction to out-of-state legal advertising that appears in New York. 

Thanks to Christopher Ernst of BDB, who blogs at Tort Law Journal, for the pointer.
