"We were one of the first barristers' chambers with a website, one of the first with a blog, one of the first with a ".eu" TLD (though we have not yet decided how to use it), one of the few with a ".law.pro" domain (though we are probably going to give that up) and the first with a WAP site (which we definitely have given up). Now we are one of the first (if not the first) to launch and support a voluntary public wiki for our area of the law.There are certainly other wikis with IP content, but none -- so far as the IPKat knows -- that concentrate on giving advice rather than information. You can visit this wiki here. Says the IPKat, this looks like an interesting venture, particularly when contributors get to the point at which they disagree with one another. Merpel adds, I've taken a little look but still haven't found the most exciting bit: the disclaimer.
We could be wrong, but we think we have the first IP law wiki anywhere - at least in the UK Like our other websites and this blog, the wiki will concentrate on advice for SME and creative and innovative individuals. They need specialist legal services just as much as Siemens and Microsoft but can't afford the silly fees that are often charged for such services.
Though this has been launched and is supported by nipc it is open to everyone with an interest in IP and technology law and we hope everybody will take part".
