Welcome to my Publishing Law Guru blog.
I have been called “Publishing Guru” in the 2005 edition of The Legal 500 and “Famous guru” in the 2008 edition of the Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession, and so I thought it would be appropriate to use this accolade as the name for my blog. This blog will be a place for reporting, discussing and seeking comments on legal issues relating to publishing — and anything else which happens to be on the mind of those who read or contribute to this blog. I will be looking at things primarily from a UK law point of view, but will be happy to receive comments from outside the UK, as this will help generate an international perspective.
This is my first blog, so please bear with me if it takes me a while to get the hang of things.
