Anyone here blog and speak English?

Ian Best, author of the 3L Epiphany blog has the following question:

Are you aware of any court cases in the United Kingdom that have cited legal blogs? If so, could you please let me know, preferably with the case citations and the name of the blogs? I would like to inform my readers about them.
If you know of any such cases, please drop the IPKat an email here and he’ll forward it.

The criticisms of the terms of reference for the Gowers Review in SCRIPT-ed should have been directed at Gordon Brown not Andrew Gowers. Brown set up the review as a Treasury exercise to study the financial implications of IP laws.
