The IPKat has visited many other interesting websites and blogs in the course of his quest for exciting tidbits of intellectual property information to share with his readers. Some of these sites continue to blossom, while others just wither on the vine. Can anyone tell the IPKat whatever happened to

* The Patent Blog and the Copyright Blog: Nothing has been heard of the Patent Blog since 8 October 2003, or of the Copyright Blog since Wednesday 18 February 2004. Both were run by The Intellect Law Group, a small Florida-based law firm.

* Sans Blog: the first dedicated French-language IP blog, this was launched by IP Twins, but hasn't been live since 9 October 2003.

*WordSpy: a wonderful site that features new uses of words and neologisms (including many uses of trade marks and business names), but nothing has been added to it since 13 June 2004.

The IPKat is a curious cat and he'd love to know the following things: (i) have these blogs/websites been abandoned completely or are they just in hibernation? (ii) if they have been abandoned, is anyone else interested in taking them over? Please tell ...

Hi Jeremy,
A little word on "Sans blog", the French blog on IP: It was a tentative one, and the authors have unfortunately relinquished this project.
If you want to read other IP blogs in French, I think you will only find:
- the Little Trademark Museum, which highlights the exotic, the odd, and the celebrity-owned in trademark filings. Frédéric Glaize, a Trademark Attorney, publishes there the funny TM registrations he finds
- the Domain Name blog, written by... me, in French and English. You may find there legal news related to domain names.
If I hear of other IP blogs, I will let you know.

Hello fellow fisherman,

Did you know that 16% of the U.S. population goes fishing at least 16 days a year?

Did you also know that over 75% of the nations fishermen do not fish during "prime time"; fish feeding hours?

Those precious few moments before twilight can be absolutely magical. Even up until 11pm at night, the largest predators of any species feed ravenously.

Don't believe me? Check out Daniel Eggertsen's story, and a picture of a couple of his catches here : "Evening Secrets plus more"

I want you to do me a favor and try it out so I can see what you think of it, and if it works for you as well as it did for me.

You will be one of the first to try it out.

Gone Fishin',
