CiteGenie Now Captures Citations from Westlaw AND LexisNexis

Thanks to Scott Frey who alerted me to some changes with CiteGenie. If you didn't catch my earlier post about it, CiteGenie is a new extension for the Firefox web browser that, as its website promises, "automagically" creates Bluebook formatted pinpoint citations when copying from Westlaw.

The good news is that CiteGenie now supports LexisNexis as well. And, it also offers improved compatibility with Jureeka. See the change log for these and other upgrades.

It also appears that when you install CiteGenie, you're only getting a 90 day trial. After that, you have to register. Scott reports that the license fee is currently $14.97 for 3 computers plus $4.99 for each additional computer. I'm not sure where this is listed - I didn't see it on the site.

I wish that CiteGenie had made this clear right up front. While it's still an excellent value for the money, the fact that you thought you were getting something for free and then find out you're not tends to leave a bad taste in your mouth. But still, I highly recommend this resource.
