Legal IT PR and the Chocolate Teapot – UPDATED

chocolateteapot

Thanks to some recent PR and marketing/press relations Muppetry – with some channels proving about as useful as a chocolate teapot – we thought it timely to remind people of our requirements. To set all this into context, we are an information provider – our mission is to curate and supply information to our readers that they will find useful.

(And please don’t whinge if you have sent us a boring story that we haven’t published because it is boring.)
