by Dennis Crouch In 2006, the publishers of the UK based Intellectual Asset Magazine (iam) founded the non-profit IP Hall of Fame to honor individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the development of IP law and practice. The process begins with nominations from the public and then voting by members of the 45 members of the IP Hall of Fame Academy. The Academy includes previous inductees to the Hall of Fame and a handful of additional members. (I am a voting member of the Academy but not the IP Hall of Fame). The focus is global and includes all areas of intellectual property law and practice.
Call for Nominations: The nomination process closes on December 9, 2011. To nominate someone, simply fill in the nomination form and supply a paragraph of between 50 and 100 words to support your nomination. The award ceremony and gala dinner will be held at the Estoril Casino near Lisbon, Portugal during the IP Business Congress in June 2012.
