    Image by theogeo via Flickr Hooray! Christmas has been saved! Okay, a bit dramatic. But the hue and cry surrounding the so-called Christmas tree tax had reached such a fevered pitch by this afternoon that you could have assumed the very holiday itself was under attack. Rest assured, the holidays are still on track. Nonetheless, President Obama announced plans to nix the proposed fee on the sale of Christmas trees. No more Christmas tree tax. The fees from the sale – which had… [read post]

They’re playing non-stop Christmas music on the radio which is the universal indicator that the crazy portion of the holiday season has begun. I generally love the holidays, but I can’t stand the commercialistic beast that it’s become. Dogs Fucking Hate Christmas by TheGiantVermin from Flickr I don’t get it when I see news stories about people getting into fist fights over the last must-have toy for their kids, or people who line up on Thanksgiving afternoon to be first… [read post]

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Like many families, we spent the last few days decorating for the holidays – and that included putting up our Christmas tree. Our tree was one of nearly 45 million Christmas trees purchased this year: about 30 million of those trees will be real. That’s a lot of green. And I’m not just talking about needles: the sale of trees generates quite a bit of revenue for retailers, growers and marketers. It may cost even more if Congress… [read post]

From US Patent No. 4,113,020, titled "Fire safety Christmas ornament." It is that time of the year where when we prepare our homes for the arrival a jolly old magical chief elf who despite his enormous girth is still able to make his way down our narrow chimneys lickedy-split, while somehow managing not to get any soot on his pristine red and white trousers and overcoat. In order to celebrate holidays I always like to profile some patents relative to the festivities, proving once and for all that… [read post]

‘Tis the season for Christmas parties and Christmas party DUI arrests.  If you are arrested for a Christmas party DUI you may be thinking, ”What do I do now?”  Being arrested for DUI is a frightening and traumatic experience.  Our clients often struggle to deal with the stigma and shame associated with a DUI arrest.  Many strong people are brought to tears when telling a loved-one about their arrest.  Complicating matters is a palpable sense that… [read post]

Of course, it wouldn't be a traditional Christmas at IPWatchdog unless we spent some time profiling some cool innovations that relate to the holiday season.

With the hours winding down before Santa Claus makes his way down chimneys across the world, join us as we take a look back at some of the most popular children’s toys of all time, as well as… [read post]

If you are, this excellent 13-step holiday greeting card guide for law firms will help you create a plan and a timetable. You don't want to wait until the last minute.

My review of the state-of-the-art sleigh technologies shows that during the early 1880s more comfortable sleigh rides were on the minds of many an inventor, and by the mid to late 1890s improvements evolved to include additional features, such as removable seats, steps to assist one to enter and disembark from the sleigh and various steering mechanisms. Like virtually all reviews of patented technology, even such low tech inventions as sleighs, the ongoing evolution of improvement is apparent, which… [read post]
