Greg Beck writes "New York is proposing new "ethics" rules on attorney advertising that would make it difficult for lawyers in New York to blog or in many cases even send an email. The rules are so out of touch with technology that, for example, a blog would have to be printed out and saved for a year (with an extra copy mailed to the state) every time it is updated." This isn't the first time we've seen this. Last year, there was a similar issue in Kentucky. As Greg's post shows, lawyer blogs would also have to include additional info announcing that it was advertising, while listing the names and law firms of any participating lawyers in the largest font found on the page. Funny, that: even lawyers can't seem to understand that the laws they're writing for themselves aren't any good.
