A letter in this month's CIPA Journal from Ian Craven (UDL) suggests that the Journal, currently sent by post each month to all its members, could be improved with the addition of an electronic version. Ian suggests that a searchable electronic archive of the Journal would be much more useful than the paper version. Eventually this could replace the current paper version, at least for those willing to opt-out of it, which could save quite a few trees (and cut down on the ever-increasing shelf space the Journal occupies).

The IPKat thinks that this is an excellent idea, and thought that this blog might be a good way to get an impression from its readers, many of whom he knows are patent professionals, of whether this would generally be a 'good thing', and therefore something that CIPA should be doing.
The editor of the Journal would like to know who else is interested. Any comments on this blog, anonymous or otherwise, would also be gratefully received.
