Visae Patentes Merges with IPJur to become KSNH::LAW and KSNH::JUR

In winter 2009 I started thinking about building up the Visae Patentes blog as a privat medium for IP related issues that I found interesting or important. My idea was to blog those things that I come across my daily routine as a patent attorney of the Munich-based IP law firm KSNH.

I soon felt that I had to produce a certain constant flow of postings in order to establish the blog as a known source in the IP blogosphere. There certaily are many excellent and highly competent IP blogs out there and also some flagships that earn a great deal of well-deserved attention. I realised that being a solo blogger is nice, but it would be even nicer and also more effective to have fellow bloggers to share responsibilities and success with.

So I went into medias res with my good colleague Axel H Horns, an experienced IP blogger who also had the feeling that something had to be changed with his popular IPJur blog that he runs for many years now. We soon decided to join forces and go for something new, which finally ended up our new blogs KSNH::LAW and KSNH::JUR under the agies of our patent firm.

While the English KSNH::LAW blog will be the joint successor of IPJur and Visae Patentes, standing in continuity of its predecessors as regards content, quality and attitude, the German KSNH::JUR blog is intended to provide more practical and business-related information for inventors and entrepreneurs who wish to optimise the outcome of or maybe even start identifying and utilising their intangible assets.

Therefore, dear readers, subscribers, followers, and friends, please feel invited to join Axel and myself in our new blogging project, e.g. by checking out our initial postings and possibly become a regular reader or subscriber.

For example, the latest postings on KSNH::LAW relate to

As regards this blog, I presently do not know exactly how to continue with it; maybe I will share more pronounced political or private views on professional issues that are not appropriate for a corporate blog.
