SO MUCH TO BE THANKFUL FOR THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!
During this season of thanks, I wanted to take a moment to thank you, my amazing network of clients, friends and colleagues, for making this past year so exciting and rewarding.  I look forward to continuing to work with you -- to grow, enforce and exploit your intellectual property, and to protect your valuable businesses.

WEBSITE TERMS OF USE - 
HERE'S WHY YOU NEED THEM
Terms of use (TOU) are a contract between the users and the provider of a website. In the "olden" days (like 1992!), when sites were static and only basic information was transmitted from the provider to the user, there was little need to set out explicit terms for the interaction. Today, most websites are interactive and information is as much transmitted from the user to the provider as the other way around. Moreover, as many website providers collect data and information about their users, TOU have become a necessity. Click here to read about five important issues that should be addressed when drafting TOU. 
THANKSGIVING TRADEMARK FUN
Thanksgiving is a national holiday and a great American tradition. In addition to food and football, Thanksgiving is connected with valuable brands. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has kicked off the holiday season since 1924, and the parade itself is an important brand and marketing tool for Macy’s. Macy’s owns a United States trademark registration for MACY’S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE. For our four-legged friends, Merrick Pet Care has registered the trademark THANKSGIVING DAY DINNER for pet foods. And for the vegetarians amongst us, Thanksgiving wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without TOFURKY, a registered trademark of Turtle Island Foods. If you're going to be in Pasadena this Thanksgiving, you can join the Tofurky Trot and celebrate 20 years of Tofurky (and its clever branding).

WISHING YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONES A HEALTHY
AND JOYOUS START TO THE HOLIDAY SEASON
