Where are you located? IP Draughts’ readership analysed

On a clear day, you can see our reader in France!

WordPress provides blog managers with interesting statistical information about blog users.  Our previous posting summarised data such as number of hits, most popular postings, and so on.

For the first time today, a new category of information appears in the administration section of the site: geography.  We thought you might be interested to see where your fellow readers are located.  For the last 7 days, the stats are as follows:

 By IP Draughts’ quick calculation the numbers in this table add up to 856, while the aggregate number of daily hits (shown on another part of the “site stats” page) from last Saturday to today are slightly higher.  As it is now the beginning of the day in the UK, we are likely to be close to a weekly total of 1,000 by the end of the day.
As one might expect for a blog on IP contracts written from a common lawyer’s perspective, common law jurisdictions dominate the table.  The relative number of US readers is impressive – edging ahead of the UK.  IP Draughts is interested to see the number of Australian, Canadian and New Zealand readers, and hopes to welcome more in coming months.
We have a fair spread of readers in the Far East, with India in the vanguard.  Countries and territories such as Singapore and Hong Kong are perhaps not surprising in view of their continuing connections with the UK.  Unexpected, but no less welcome are the Philippines and Malaysia which have a reasonable number of hits.

I can't come out tonight, I have to read IP Draughts

Our German readers lead the way for Continental Europe, closely followed by Belgium (where IP Draughts has a couple of clients and has participated in ASTP‘s annual training courses at Leuven University).  Later this month, IP Draughts will be in Amsterdam giving an all-day course on clinical trial agreements, and hopes that the statistics from the Netherlands will improve after that date!

A heartfelt thanks to all our readers for your continuing support and for the kind messages that we have received on our first anniversary.

    You should take a trip one day. You will not be disappointed. Sadly, the IP law at the moment is not as developed as in your country and Europe at large. There still exists many loopholes in law relating to IP in Kenya.

  2. Hello, Sasaka. Thanks for participating! So far, I have managed to visit Nigeria, Namibia and South Africa, but not Kenya. Maybe one day (I hope)…

    Looking at the ranks and the statistics, I think I’m one out of the two from Kenya
