Ok– I’m getting to the point where I’ve provided a lot of general information, but unfortunately without more specific questions from readers there isn’t much more "general ed" I can provide. This means I can do a few things.
1) Blog less, i.e. once a week, and cover a few more specific areas and contracts
2) Blog about things that are currently going on in the industry and provide legal analysis
3) Get questions from people and answer them here.
The first is tempting, and I probably will slow down on the daily blogging as work starts to pick up. The second will probably be filler. I would like to rely predominantly on the third, but that is obviously up to you guys.
So if you have questions you’d like answered, send me an e-mail and I will answer the question on this site.
1. Keep your questions fairly general. Specific legal advice is not only prohibitive (as in, it creates the problem of creating a client-attorney relationship and confidentiality issues) but it is also fairly unhelpful to anyone but you. If you do have specific questions, make a note in your subject heading that it’s not for publication.
2. Try to ask questions that you think developers want to know the answer to. While I’m more than willing to answer questions about music and film as well, I’m planning on starting another blog down the road with a more general entertainment focus, and I’d hate to use up good content.
3. Don’t ask questions about coding language/etc. outside of a legal (i.e. copyright or patent) context. I don’t know the answer.
4. Make sure you read the Disclaimer on the side bar and the "about me" section, so you know who you’re asking.
