Every blog post is an ad if you are a Kentucky lawyer

Today I’m glad I’m not based in Kentucky, because then I would be walking on very thin ice (because of our blawg). The Kentucky Attorney’s Advertising Commission has decided that each blog post is an ad, which in the Kentucky lawyers’ code requires a “A filing fee of $50.00 for each advertisement” and for every change in the advertisement. How ironic that the blawg who started it all is Ben Cowgill’s Legal Ethics Blog. Hopefully Ben will be able to continue with his blog eventually.
