Two academics at the University of California at Berkeley are teaming up to launch a new law blog that will feature what they consider the top 10 pending cases in the United States concerning Internet, software and database issues.
"No other blog does this," explains Schultz, who is an assistant clinical professor at Berkeley's law school and director of the Samuelson Law, Technology & Public Policy Clinic. "There are blogs that talk about Internet-related cases, but none that rank them to help readers focus on where the significant decisions will emerge."
The No. 1 case posted on the blog's top 10 list right now is the proposed Google Books settlement.
Teaming up with Schultz to launch the blog is assistant professor Brian Carver of the university's School of Information.
Others expected to contribute regularly include assistant professor Aaron Perzanowski of Wayne State University Law School and partner Joseph Gratz of Durie Tangri in San Francisco.
