Looks like NY is in the process of changing its ethics laws so that a blog would be considered advertising, which is strictly regulated by the state.  Under the changes, any communication made by a lawyer about a lawyer would be considered an advertisement.  While its understandable to view a blog as an advertisement, one question is whether there is a real problem this law is trying to solve.  How many blawgs might confuse or misleas consumers versus how much would we be hurt if the costs of writing to a blawg becomes to high?  It recalls a NYT article about lawyers’ disproportionate share of the blogosphere.
