It’s that time of year again, when IAM begins the annual search to identify outstanding individuals to induct into the IP Hall of Fame. And, as always, we need your nominations as part of the selection process. Please let us know who you believe deserves recognition by completing the (very short) nomination form before March 20th.
Since 2006, the IP Hall of Fame has been honouring those individuals – living or dead – who have had a major positive impact on the IP landscape, whether as a lawyer, academic, business executive, inventor, politician, or in any other capacity. A list of the luminaries who have already been included can be found here.
If you know of somebody who deserves recognition for their ground-breaking contributions to the IP field, please nominate them here. Self-nominations and those deemed by the IAM editorial team to be for promotional purposes will not be considered.
Once the nominations process comes to an end on March 20th, all valid nominations will be sent (anonymously) to the IP Hall of Fame Academy, whose members – composed of past inductees and celebrated IP thought-leaders – will vote on which of the nominees to induct this year.
The three nominees to receive the most Academy votes will be announced in April and will be honoured at IPBC Global, Chicago, in June.
We look forward to receiving your nominations.
