The admirable and ever-informative Intellectual Property Watch weblog has undergone a couple of discreet but welcome changes.
"Readers may have noticed a few changes ... which we hope will make us easier to use as we bring you the same great content like breaking and in-depth stories and expert views, plus new features like a microblog (the IP Burble), better subscription management, improved search capabilities, a new discussion forum, more podcasts and other products and services. For those signed up to our RSS feed, you will need to update your feed reader with the following new feed address: http://feeds2.feedburner.com/ip-watch."
Improbably, The SPC Blog -- perhaps the most niche of all the IP niche blogs -- has just notched up its 300th email subscriber. With over 50 RSS feed-readers and over 1,500 casual visitors to the site each month, it seems that there is evidence that interest in supplementary protection certificates for patents is running at an all-time high.
