Ten million! Thanks so much ...

This morning the IPKat weblog's Google page-view counter (which readers may have noticed in the sidebar on the left-hand side of the IPKat's home page) reached the magical, if admittedly arbitrary, figure of 10,000,000.  The Kat, together with Merpel, just wanted to take this opportunity to say another big "thank-you" to their readers from all around the world who have kept on visiting their blog and whose comments, criticisms and witticisms have both educated them and enriched their understanding of IP and how it works.

Thanks are also due to the many regular and guest Kats past and present, plus our occasional guest contributors, for keeping a regular flow of at least passably interesting blogposts -- and, as ever, our especial gratitude goes to the legislators, lawyers, litigants and judges whose combined efforts, for good or ill, have provided such fertile material for us to discuss.

Thank you all!

  1. Huffington Post gets 110 million a month, so still much to strive for.

    However congratulations! Very well deserved for an amazingly up to date comprehensive coverage of the IP scene.

  2. Dear Jeremy:

    This is an apawgee of achievement for a blog about cats that are interested in intellectual property. Or should that be IP practitioners who are interested in cats?

    In any event, felixitations!

    I am sure that I account for no more than a million of those hits.

  3. Thank you, Uncle Wiggily for your kind words -- and for the various comments you have posted, which have kept us and our readers on their paws/toes!

  4. Not as many as the Huffington Post purr-haps but no cat-astrophe a claw-some purr-formance. Well done.

  5. Furmidable! Always a happy paws in the sometimes dull days of practice. May Merpel's tail twitch furever in anticipation of her next mewsing.

  6. Sorry, but how's Huff Post relevant here? For a specialist law blog? This is incredible! IPKat, well done.

  7. Take a bow, Merpel. You're the greatest.

  8. You are the cat's pyjamas!


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.
