1 Thanks again for visiting the IPKat
October has been another amazing month for the IPKat. The number of visits to his weblog last month was 11,693 - a new record. In addition to our visitors, some 233 people receive each blog by email as soon as it is posted (if you'd like to receive email updates, either scroll down to the bottom of the page and enter your email address in the little box provided, or just email the IPKat here).
Thanks so much for visiting the site. Your support, your interests, your queries and your comments make it all so worthwhile for the Kat's authors, who have learnt a great deal from the experience. It's just so good to know that there are so many intellectual property enthusiasts out there: we've had visits from people whose originating domains can be traced to 75 different countries.
Merpel says thanks, too: you're always welcome to call!
