Inductions are made into the IP Hall of Fame on an annual basis. Inductees are chosen by members of the IP Hall of Fame Academy, which comprises individuals already inducted into the IP Hall of Fame and other acknowledged IP leaders. The Academy makes its selection based on the nominations it receives from the global IP community and chooses those nominees considered to have made an outstanding contribution to the development of today’s IP system.
