This blog can help readers by naming legal departments that have licensed specialized software. If you tell me about those instances, as end-user or as consultant or as software provider, I will periodically summarize the information without attribution. Other legal departments, pondering software selection, will find the information useful and all of us will develop a better picture of software usage by in-house teams.
