More “Open Source” Legal Tools
Last year I wrote a post about WSGR’s new term sheet generator and how that was part of an overall trend to “open source” the legal industry. Open source is the wrong term though; instead is probably better to say automate since LegalZoom and others are doing the same thing but commercially. I think this is great for end users both personal and professional, but I think it is going to seriously erode legal industry revenue in the long term. It’s silly to pay by the hour to have the same documents generated over and over.
It looks like a great service. It’s free and I’m sure I’ll use it in the future.
