Thomson to sell Profound and NewsEdge

Karen Blakeman is reporting the interesting news on her Blog that Thomson are to sell Profound and NewsEdge I'm going to be honest and say I have never heard of either of these products but that may be because they are not heavily used in the legal sector.

I do agree with Karen's comments that Thomson has always lost out to Factiva and Lexis Nexis in terms of news content. Recently I was impressed by one of Westlaw's News products called Westlaw Watch. This is an alerting service that will naturally draw comparisons with Nexis.com.
