This year has been an active one for intellectual property in general and for the ABA Section of Intellectual Property Law (ABA-IPL) in particular. In my final message as Section chair, I want to urge each of you who read this message to continue your ongoing commitment to remaining active in your respective communities on the local, state, and national level and to promote selfless public service. Public service is, and will likely remain, the highest form of giving that any individual can perform—and the concept of “public service” remains a broad one that can take many different forms.
