As the new editor of Landslide® magazine, I welcome you to our sixth year of publication. Members of the ABA Section of Intellectual Property Law receive this magazine six times annually as a benefit of affiliation. We’re pleased that Landslide has earned a wide reputation within the ABA, as well as beyond the membership, as one of the premier IP publications in the industry.

We look forward to continuing to serve our diverse audience of readers by providing quality content that enhances IP practice and by including an array of thought provoking subject matter that touches on the broadest range of issues. The revamped “Decisions in Brief” column, debuting in this issue, is one of many areas of expansion you will see in the coming year. Readers can also look forward to receiving a comprehensive five-year index in 2014. Back issues are now available online at

Landslide magazine welcomes your article submissions, ideas, and comments, and I encourage each of you to contact us any time. I hope to hear directly from many of you.

On behalf of the editorial board and staff of the magazine, I convey sincere appreciation to Marisia Campbell for her leadership and inspiration, as she passes the torch as editor-in-chief.
