In my search for legal materials and opinion on this and that I can came across this article with a fabulous list of folks. Its a cross section of “legal” stuff, so be prepared for not only top notch tech info but legal news, legal humor (yes there are some good lawyer jokes) as well as coverage of The Supreme Court and a few blogs. Enjoy and share the wealth if there are others we should know about.
