Over on LinkedIn, we’ve been considering the future of a UK legal support network for online publishers. Interested? Drop me a line, or/and join the group.

Know about a media law/ethics event? Let me know and I’ll put it in the round up and on a soon-to-be-written events page (admittedly, I’ve said that for a few weeks now). You can find a full stream of aggregated media law news via @medialawUK on Twitter; and Meeja Law tweets go out via @meejalaw. Contact me via @jtownend or jt.townend [at] gmail.com.
