A newly launched blog is the first I’ve seen to focus on the topic of furniture law. The Womble Carlyle Furniture Law Blog comes from the Intellectual Property Group at the law firm of Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice in Winston-Salem, N.C. The blog will focus on IP and patent issues that affect the furniture industry, covering case filings, court decisions and legislative affairs. The blog’s authors are Jack B. Hicks, a patent attorney in the firm’s Greensboro office, and Jacob S. Wharton, an IP attorney in the Winston-Salem office. Upon first look, the blog appears solidly built and nicely finished.
