Many of you may have heard the news that LexisOne, Lexis’ minimalist effort at providing a limited selection of free case law, was officially shut down earlier this month. Apparently, Lexis did a two-step program to first place LexisOne behind a “community site” (which required registration), and then two months later shut it down completely. Many of us were not surprised by Lexis’ move, but we were still disappointed that once again, an access point to legal information was first placed behind a registration wall, and then eventually placed behind a pay-wall. Now in order to get to the cases that were once available to anyone with an Internet connection, Lexis now requires that you subscribe to its pricey subscription-based product.
