Legal Publishing beyond 2007

Prism Consulting have a very interesting post on the challenges and opportunities facing legal publishers. The main areas of change are:

Business Context - The market in which legal publishers sell their products

Content Delivery - How the technology that is being used by publishers to "deliver" their products is changing.

Content Creation - How access to new publishing tools (Blogs, Wikis etc) is enabling smaller "niche" publishers an opportunity to promote their content to wider audiences.

The post summaries the main challenge as technology "Technology is a two-edged sword for publishers. The likely outcome is that new technology propels publisher growth, albeit with some bumps along the way."
