It’s time once more to ask you to help us identify those individuals worthy of inclusion in the IP Hall of Fame. Since its launch in 2006, the IP Hall of Fame has served as a way for the global IP community to recognise and honour those people who have made a significant impact on today’s IP ecosystem. Whether they are legislators, deal-makers, educators, business executives, lawyers, judges or campaigners, the men and women who feature in the IP Hall of Fame are all IP heavyweights.
To make the nomination process as simple as possible, we have created a dedicated nomination form through which you can make as many nominations as you so wish. As ever, self nominations, or those deemed by the IAM editorial team as purely for promotional purposes, will not be considered. All valid nominations will, however, be collated once the process closes on March 4 and sent to the IP Hall of Fame Academy for consideration. Comprising past inductees and IP thought leaders, each member of the Academy is given five votes. The candidates who receive the most votes will be our inductees for 2015.
Nominees can work in any field and can be living or deceased.
The identities of 2015’s inductees into the IP Hall of Fame will be announced in April. They will be honoured at a gala dinner taking place in San Francisco on June 15, during this year’s IPBC Global. We look forward to receiving your nominations.
