US IP JUDGE GETS BLOGGING


US Federal Circuit judge Richard Posner has started a blog, together with Gary Becker, winner of the Nobel Prize for economics. Judge Posner is particularly interested in antitrust and intellectual property law and is a major proponent of the law and economics school of law. Considering Judge Posner’s influential position, the blog may well become required reading to those who are interested in US IP, though of course he can’t comment on pending litigation.

The IPKat wonders what a blog written by a UK judge would look like…

I think you mean "7th Circuit," instead of "Federal Circuit." See http://www.law.uchicago.edu/faculty/posner-r/

Bill, you're quite right. I took the wording from the Becker-Posner Blog itself - I think by writing that Posner means to say that he sits in federal rather than state cases.
