Writing for the Wikipedia

I’ve been up to a vari­ety of dif­fer­ent things for clients in the past few days some of which, but not all, I’ll describe lat­er. One thing that is in the pub­lic domain, is my first con­tri­bu­tion to the “Wikipedia(link to the Wikipedia site)”:http://www.wikipedia.com/: an arti­cle on the top­ic of “geo­graph­i­cal indications”:http://www.wikipedia.com/wiki/Geographical_indications_law I’ve been sur­prised to learn that even legal aca­d­e­mics with an inter­est in IP rights (e.g. “Kim Weatherall(link to Weather­al­l’s Law site)”:http://weatherall.blogspot.com/2003_09_01_weatherall_archive.html#106463192935636056) haven’t paid much atten­tion to this issue in the past. The Wikipedia seems like one way to address the infor­ma­tion deficit. Alter­nate­ly, its a way of absorb­ing two hours that you real­ly should have devot­ed to that report for clients you promised would be fin­ished a week ago.
