CALLING ALL BLOGGERS - AND THE KAT CONGRATS A NEW JUDGE


1 A short request to other IP bloggers

The IPKat, like everyone else, uses publicly available news sources for his daily blogs. He's very pleased when other bloggers pay a visit and he doesn't mind at all if they want to use his materials, or his links, for their own blog posts. But it would be nice if, when you've used something you found on this blog, you mention that you saw it here ... A brief credit won't diminish the value of your own blog but will reduce the Kat's tendency to feel that his efforts are being harnessed by others without him receiving any recognition.

Right: the Kat exacts dire retribution from a friend who forgot to give him credit.


2 If you can't stand the heat ...

The IPKat congratulates David Kitchin QC on his elevation, announced in today's The Lawyer, to the High Court. David has been a star performer at 8 New Square and will be viewed as a good, heavyweight replacement for Sir Hugh Laddie, who has shuffled off his wig and headed for the green pastures of private practice with Willoughby & Partners/Rouse & Co.

The IPKat wishes Mr Justice Kitchin the very best of luck and will be scrutinising all his IP decisions with eager anticipation.

What if such IP bloggers use the same source as IP Cat does?

No problem. Read what the Kat wrote!

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',

Neil
