Semantic Wave Hits Legal Publishing, Part 1: Current Cash Cows

So far the Creative Destruction series have covered Financial Services, B2B Media and STM Publishing. Today we start on Legal Publishing.

The legal services market globally is about $250 billion annually. The US accounts for about 2/3 of that (yes $167 billion is a lot, that is $546 for every man, woman and child in America but from another perspective, it is ONLY 1.2% of GDP, so it is still small compared to say Healthcare and Education).

Within that $250 billion is a $5 billion market for Legal Publishing. That makes publishing about 1.2% of the services market. So, as with STM Publishing, we need to look at the wider context of the market served by Legal Publishing.

In short, Legal Publishing is still in Act 2. But we may see Acts 3, 4, 5 and 6 play out very fast.

Semantic Wave Hits STM Publishing, Part 1: Current Cash Cows

WWW.jpgWhen Sir Tim Berners-Lee invented the protocols that became the Web in 1991, he was thinking mainly about scientific information. He would have been surprised to learn that in 2010, music, dating and shopping had been completely changed but that scientific publishing had NOT been fundamentally disrupted. The disruption of STM (Scientific, Technical, Medical) publishing has been the most forecasted event that never happened. In a further irony, the peer review process at the heart of STM publishing became the inspiration for Google Page Rank. That changed the web and made $ billions but left STM publishing mostly unaffected.

So STM Publishing is currently only in Act 2 of the Creative Destruction 7 Act Play. The old guard players are firmly in place and the few innovators are like straws blowing in the wind of change. The debate about when we will move to the later acts, when disruptive change will finally happen, rages within the STM business. Our view is that we ARE on the cusp of disruptive change and that it will be brought on by the implementation of social networking and semantic technology.
