Lawyers have the reputation for holding the “scum of the earth” title since before I can remember. They use our overly complex legal system to make the most money possible, regardless. Recently in Kentucky, it’s a bird, it’s a plane, no –it’s a blog! Blogs have taught lawyers in middle America a quick lesson.
A Kentucky lawyer who has a blog got caught in a trap that his own kind set many years ago. For a lawyer to advertise in Kentucky they must pay a fee, and each time they change or add to that advertisement, the fee must be paid again. This lawyer’s blog is viewed as advertisement, and each time it changed (added a post, someone posted a comment, uploaded a picture, etc…) he needs to pay up. Looks like blogs one upped ‘the man’ yet again, blogs 1, lawyers 0.
