Today is the three-year anniversary of the Patently-O Blog. It all started on April 6, 2004. We now have 1400+ posts covering every precedential patent appeal and Supreme Court decision during this time.
I'm amazed at the popularity of the site -- especially considering that the site is primarily directed to the relatively small group of attorneys practicing patent law and patent litigation (about 30,000 persons). In all, there have been over 3 million visits. These visits come from virtually every technology-related Fortune 1000 company, every law firm with at least five patent attorneys on staff, and many many other sources. Recently a larger number of Patent Examiners have begun to read the site as well. The graph below falls-short because it does not include the 8,000+ attorneys and agents who have signed-up to receive Patently-O through an e-mail or an RSS-reader.
