Now that the legal term has ended, Inforrm is taking a winter break for a few weeks to allow the editorial team to relax. We will have a some occasional posts over the next fortnight but the full normal service will not be resumed until 9 January 2018.

It has been another great year for views and posts on the Inforrm blog.  We have had over 400,000 page views this year, more than half from the UK with the United States, Australia, Malaysia and India making up the rest of the top five.  We have had over 400 posts this year on a very wide variety of media and legal topics from authors from all areas of media law and all round the world.

Many thanks to all our readers for following the blog and our twitter feed.  And thank you for the many positive comments we have had (and the constructive negative ones).  Thanks also to everyone who has written for the blog.

As we have said many times before, Inforrm is intended to be a forum for debate and we welcome contributions from all points of view about issues concerning “media and law”.  We can be contacted via the email address on the home page.
