Top Patent Blogs for 2018

This is an update for the Top Patent Blogs post that I published back in 2011… In preparing for this Top Patent Blogs post, I reached out to the writers (patent attorneys and patent professor) from the Top Patent Blogs post and asked them a few questions about why they maintain their blogs. Not all responded but from those that did, I got a sense that their blogs are more than just another means of attracting new business. For example, a few use blogging as a reason for reading cases and briefing them to keep up with the current state of patent law. The reasons varied far and wide. To summarize or to get to the essence of their differentiation, I asked them how they felt their blog was different from the others on the list. For their answers, see the Comment by Blog Manager column below in the ranking list.

But as great a feeling as that is, perhaps the bigger news this year was that the ABA Journal selected to be in the ABA Blawg Hall of Fame.

We also averaged nearly 139,000 unique monthly visitors during Q4 of 2013.

Updating the Top Patent Blogs

As you click through to each of the blogs, you will notice the content on each of the blogs is different. appears to be statistically driven. Mr. Crouch produces many different patent stats. We appreciate him for that. Gene’s blog is filled with opinion of legal patent developments. highlights how patents and other IP protection hurt society. The list goes on and on. Instead of visiting only the top blogs, I recommend that you spend some time reviewing each of the blogs because each blog infuses a bit of their own perspective and personality into the online conversations currently occurring in the blogosphere.
