2,000 and still going strong!

On 22 June 2005 the IPKat and Merpel established their email readers' list, to enable readers of this weblog to receive the latest postings in the comfort of their own in-trays, without the need to exercise their furrowed browsers. Today, virtually three years to the day, the 2,000th email subscriber has joined the list. Although this is just an arbitrary figure, the Kats are thrilled at this -- it shows that even a so-called "niche subject" like intellectual property can attract and sustain a large and growing readership.

On behalf of all of the blogging team, the Kats would like to say a huge thank-you to all of their readers. Your comments, suggestions, links and even the occasional holiday snaps have been an inspiration (and often a provocation) to us all. Another thank-you, just as heartfelt, goes to the authors, inventors, artists, musicians, judges, legislators, bureaucrats, marketeers, rights owners and litigants who have made this all possible.

Right: cards of this lovely illustration of the Kats celebrating can be acquired from the Bengalized Studio Store Art Cards for a moderate consideration

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
