That was a subheading in an article about law blogging I wrote what seems like millenia ago now, and a recurrent theme in today's Weblogs and Law discussion at BloggerCon. Dan Gillmor: "The more you guys demystify what you do, the better." The session was excellent, covering all the key topics: copyright and fair use, first amendment protections, on the record and off the record treatment of oral and written material, how copyright principles may have to adapt to a world where everyone can simultaneously and instantaneously publish, privacy and right of publicity issues, and the role of blogs as communication/marketing tools (order intentional) on the commercial side of the law. The session ended with a discussion right in line with Boalt Hall Interim Dean Bob Berring's talk earlier this week about the future of legal research, and prior writings about technology and The New Blackstone.
