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.

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. Patentlyo.com appears to be statistically driven. Mr. Crouch produces many different patent stats. We appreciate him for that. Gene’s IPWatchDog.com blog is filled with opinion of legal patent developments. Againstmonopoly.com 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.

The Top 50 Patent Blogs

I am pleased to announce the top 50 patent blogs. This is non-scientific, but efforts have been made make the list as meaningful as possible.  Phase 1, which counted for 50% of the score, was an objective phase that was based on links and traffic, as determined by my research using Technorati and Alexa.  Phase 2, which likewise counted for…

Top Patent Blogs: Voting Phase Complete

Phase 2 of the quest to find the top patent blogs is now complete.  Voting started on May 27, 2009, and ran through earlier today when I downloaded the vote totals.  In all there were 3,244 votes cast for Question 1, and 3.045 votes cast for Question 2, so I think we achieved a good representative showing.  I will combine…

Calling All Copyright & Trademark Blogs

As you may know, I am trying to determine the top patent blogs on the Internet, and voting for the top patent blogs is currently underway.  The plan has always been to have some fun with this, maybe get some traffic coming to IPWatchdog.com, but most importantly to try and raise the profile of what we all are doing and…

Keeping Track of Top Patent Blog Voting

It has come to my attention that there is no real good way to check on the voting for Top Patent Blogs. I primarily use Mozilla Firefox and that seems to behave differently than Internet Explorer, at least with respect to this survey powered by SurveyMonkey.com. I have heard that some folks have been voting multiple times to see the…

Vote for the Top Patent Blogs

As promised, we are moving forward to attempt to determine the Top Patent Blogs.  With the objective component making up Phase 1 of the Top Patent Blog selection process complete, it is now time to move forward into Phase 2, which is the voting phase.  Below are 50 patent blogs for you to choose from.  Question 1 asks which patent…

Top Patent Blogs Phase 1

As promised I am moving forward with the Top Patent Blogs.  Originally the plan was for there to be 25, but I decided to make the list more inclusive so you will see that there are more than 25 blogs mentioned on each list.  I was also going to base Phase 1 on Technorati, but Technorati has refused to cooperate. …

Calling All Patent Blogs

In February I tried to compile a list of the top 25 patent blogs, but the list was admittedly insufficient.  With that in mind, I am giving it another go and looking for nominations.

The Top 25 Patent Blogs

Last Updated: February 21, 2009. This will be the last update of this list for now, but I will revisit it in several months again. I was wondering what the top patent blogs were so to inject some sense of objectivity I did some search using Technorati, which was not as easy as I had anticipated.  While Technorati is the…
