Legal publishing is a $5 billion industry. Now, the portion of that industry that focuses on publishing and selling court opinions is facing a threat from movements on several fronts to put all federal and state case law in the public domain (a topic I’ve written about here on several occasions). We look at what is being done to “free” case law in this week’s episode of the legal-affairs podcast Lawyer2Lawyer. Joining my cohost J. Craig Williams and me as guests are:
- Thomas F. Bruce, director of the Legal Information Institute at Cornell University Law School.
- Carl Malamud, founder of Public.Resource.org.
- Andy Martens, senior VP of new product development at Thomson West.
