I thought I would send out this holiday greeting before everyone escapes from the office. Let us hope that next year is filled with love, good friends and beneficial inventions. – Dennis Crouch

  1. Happy holidays Dennis. Sincerely grateful for your blog which keeps me on top of patent law developments and issues! Best wishes for your new year.

  2. Well said, Max. Hard to believe that 7 years ago, I was a fledgling patent attorney in DC, and Dennis was just a year ahead of me, but already making a name for himself with his timely and concise Fed Circuit case summaries. It’s quite a path you’ve blazed, sir. :)

  3. Where I come from, the faces of the children of celebrities are often rendered fuzzy, out of concerns for their privacy and safety. I find it very cheering, that Dennis posts here such a delightful open photo.

    I like following patent law blogs, and I know only two worth following day by day. For the USA, this is the only one. Everybody should vote for it. For Europe, the IPKat is the pre-eminent one. I wonder at the dedication and energy that goes in to keeping such a vibrant blog constantly refreshed. Thank you Dennis and thank you, family of Dennis, for tolerating his huge commitment of time and effort to this blog.

  4. By golly, it seems like just yesterday Dennis was posting about his kids being born. These kids are waaay to big to be those kids, or else time is moving faster than Santa’s sleigh with the skids greased. Is there another Crouch family out there somewhere?

    Best wishes for the Solstice Season from chilly Canada, where every additional minute added to the day is greatly appreciated.

    Love the bow tie.

  5. Many thanks for your hard work this year, and very best wishes to you and your family. Don’t forget to leave the mince pie and glass of wine for Santa, and the carrots for Rudolph!

    And readers, if you have not already voted for Patently-O, now would be a good time to do that.

  6. Because red hair inheritance is recessive, and only a small percentage of the total population, I have seen predictions that it could actually disapear in this century.

    Just because it’s recessive, that doesn’t mean it’ll disappear. Judging by the photo above, at least some of the population is still selecting for it.

    Happy holidays, all!

    With this great photo-demonstration of Dennis’ two obviously very active young boys, I find it even more amazing that he can find all the time he manages to put into running his leading patent blog.

  8. Happy Holidays to everyone. Soon the days will be getting longer again!

    Also, some science:

    Red hair can originate from several different changes on the MC1R-gene. If one of these changes is present on both chromosomes then the respective individual is likely to have red hair. This type of inheritance is described as an autosomal recessive mode of inheritance. Even if both parents do not have red hair themselves, both can be carriers for the gene and have a redheaded child.

  9. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your lovely family as well Dennis.

    Thank you for all the time and hard work you devote to PatentlyO.

    The IP world wouldn’t be the same without you.
