CCH Launches Trade Regulation Blog
(RIVERWOODS, ILL., November 16, 2006) – CCH has launched a new blog — Trade Regulation Talk – as a forum to discuss antitrust and trade regulation law in its various forms and related fields such as franchise and distribution law, consumer protection, advertising law and civil RICO. The new blog, at http://traderegulation.blogspot.com, draws on the editorial resources of CCH, a leading provider of trade regulation and business compliance information and services and part of the Wolters Kluwer Law & Business group.
The driving force behind the blog is John W. Arden, JD, LLM, Executive Editorial Director of CCH’s Trade Regulation Group. With over 25 years experience following antitrust and trade regulatory issues, Arden is in a unique position to discuss current developments and trends in this legal area. This blog is the vehicle for Arden, and his staff of legal professionals who analyze and report on developments in trade regulation, to highlight news and events and to comment in an informal way.
Surveying the communications landscape today, Arden thought that a blog would be an interesting way to connect with practitioners, customers and colleagues.
“A blog will enable us to post news in real time and receive responses almost immediately. The casual nature of a blog will allow us to comment more informally about policies and trends and will facilitate discussion among practitioners, government enforcers, students and scholars,” Arden explained.
The blog covers a wide range of issues. Antitrust decisions, spamming, foreign franchise law, liquor distribution, telemarketing and FTC merger enforcement have all been subjects of recent postings.
“While practitioners may specialize in a field such as antitrust, franchising, or advertising law, their interests tend to extend into neighboring areas,” Arden noted.
According to Arden, a basic premise of the blog is that contemporary legal research is performed in various formal and informal ways. In addition to using traditional research methods, lawyers may consult electronic newsletters, practice area listservs, legal news web sites and specialized blogs.
“We invite practitioners and others involved in antitrust and trade regulation to visit the blog and contribute to the discussion. Our goal is to become part of professionals’ routine for online information gathering and information sharing,” Arden said.
