ALM/Lexis Deal Good News for Some, But Not for Others – Robert Ambrogi’s LawSites

Legal news company ALM and legal research company LexisNexis this week announced an expansion of their content licensing agreement that is good news for LexisNexis subscribers but not so good news for the rest of the legal community.

Since 2011, LexisNexis has had the exclusive license to archived content from all ALM publications, which include The American LawyerCorporate CounselThe National Law JournalLegaltech News, the Law.comwebsite, and a number of other regional and specialty publications.

Yesterday’s announcement extends this relationship for an unspecified term and also opens opportunities for direct integration of ALM content into LexisNexis legal research products. According to the press release, the way ALM content is delivered through LexisNexis Newsdesk will be streamlined so it is delivered directly from ALM.

Direct integration will also mean that case law references within ALM online publications will link directly to the actual cases in Lexis Advance, according to the release. LexisNexis users will be able to use a single password to access all LexisNexis and ALM content.

Bing Translator

Bing Translator

Microsoft’s online Bing translator is free, easy, and getting better all the time. The service translates between 57 languages, including two varieties of Klingon (for the truly obsessed Trekkies out there), Yucatec Maya, and the more commonly used languages like Spanish, French, Russian, English, or Portuguese. To translate simply copy and paste a text into the left hand box. For instance, pasting the French phrase “Cette dame paie pour tout” into the text box returns the English translation “This lady pays for everything.” One might also like to have that phrase in Arabic, Russian, or Hmong Daw, and all of this can be accomplished simply by changing the target language in the text box on the right. While debates have long continued on whether Bing Translator or Google Translates works better, most experts agree that the two are more or less equivalent. Readers might like to try both and simply see which one they like better. [CNH]

Online Meetings & Webinar Software – Fast & Free with MeetingBurner


For readers looking for a free online platform for small meetings and webinars, MeetingBurner is a good choice. The free service can host up to ten participants, and includes screen sharing, group chat, audio and video conferencing, and some mobile tools. This can be especially helpful for small organizations with a limited budget, since few web conferencing providers offer free plans. However, to access more of MeetingBurner’s advanced features (such as the ability to host up to 50 or 250 attendees and recording options), users must pay a monthly fee. In a nutshell, this basic service is one of the few free web conferencing services available and it is perfect for small business owners or non-profits on a budget. [CNH]

Microsoft Edge – Free download and software reviews – CNET

From Microsoft: Go beyond browsing. Experience a more personal and productive web on Windows 10. Write, type, and doodle directly on your web page with Web Note, then share your notes with others. Don’t let the web get in the way of a good read. Reading View sweeps distracting content out of your way so you can read only what you want. Microsoft Edge makes recommendations easily to get you where you’re going. And with Cortana on board, you can do more, fast.

Editors’ Note: Microsoft Edge is included in Windows 10
