Legal "We can read the Linspire-Microsoft patent agreement now, or more precisely Microsoft's 'Covenant to Customers', and I thought it would be worthwhile to give it a close, line-by-line reading. I'll explain it as best I can, but ask your lawyer if it matters to you in a real-world sense. For our purposes here, let's just have fun with the worst deal I've seen yet in this category."

"Legal analysis" is no kind of legal term or even any kind of defined phrase that implies anything about qualifications of the analyst. It's just a casual phrase, there is plenty of precedent of such use, and there is no danger that anyone thinks it's anything but casual given the many disclaimers about PJ's lowly paralegal status. Your fishing expedition would be more interesting with showing an error in, you know, the "legal analysis" itself, as opposed to nitpicking phrases used to describe it or the (rather predictable) style of the analysis itself.
