Sixteen million thanks!

Eagle-eyed readers of this weblog may have spotted that today the IPKat notched up its 16 millionth page view. Once again the IPKat, Merpel and all the blog team, both perma-Kats and guests, would like to express their gratitude for the amazing support and encouragement that this blog has received since its inception in June 2003.

Without the positive and often critical contributions of our readers, the handy tip-offs, the steady flow of fascinating judicial decisions and the constant emergence of new IP-related problems, this weblog would have been very much the poorer.

In looking forward to clocking up future milestones, the IPKat's team want to assure all readers that there is no question of the Kats resting on their laurels: they will continue to work hard to maintain and improve the standard that has earned the support received so far.

  1. Any chance of getting the recent comments widget working again?

  2. Congratulations! Keep up the interesting work!

  3. It would be interesting to plot the page views against the days of the year and see if they peak around the meetings of the AC of the European Patent Office ... ;-)

    Btw, without a functioning "reader's latest comments" widget one doesn't really know which page to read ...

    Keep up the good work!


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.
