The IP Hall of Fame honours those who have made an outstanding contribution to the development of IP law and practice. Devised and developed by leading IP publication IAM, it identifies individuals who have helped to establish intellectual property as one of the key business assets of the 21st century. The aim is not only to acknowledge the vital role played by these innovators in fostering today’s vibrant IP environment and ensuring its continued health, but also to show how central intellectual property is to the global economy and to the wellbeing of people around the world.

The IP Hall of Fame welcomes new inductees on an annual basis. The nomination process allows anyone in the global IP community to put forward a name to be considered by the IP Hall of Fame Academy, comprising all living IP Hall of Fame inductees and specially invited international IP thought-leaders. A full list of Academy members can be found here.
