IP Hall of Fame

The IP Hall of Fame was developed by Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) to honour the achievements of men and women who have made an outstanding contribution to the development of today’s IP system and its role as an enhancer of lives across the world. Inductees are chosen each year by the IP Hall of Fame Academy from nominations sent in by members of the global IP community.

This year the IP Hall of Fame welcomes leading US copyright scholar, lawyer and author Paul Goldstein; past president of the INTA and former chief IP counsel of Richemont Frederick Mostert; influential IP blogger and academic Jeremy Phillips; leading Australian IP lawyer Des Ryan; and, prolific inventor Nikola Tesla.

This year's inductees were honoured at a gala dinner held in San Francisco in June during IPBC Global.
