This is the first page of U.S. Patent No. 5,582,532 which covers a New Year’s Eve party-type toy which emits "reflective particles."  Enjoy the day and the bowl games.  Go Blue!

More importantly though, I wish each of you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2007.  And thank you for helping launch the Chicago IP Litigation Blog in 2006.  I really enjoy writing it and I am very appreciative that each of you read it.  As always, your thoughts on the Blog and anything you would like to see on it are always welcome.
