Who will be this year's Famous Five?

Intellectual Asset Management magazine has announced the beginning of the nomination process to find the 2008 inductees into the IP Hall of Fame. Says IAM's editor, Joff Wild:

"Like last year, we are asking members of the global IP community to visit the IP Hall of Fame website in order to make nominations. At the close of the nomination process (mid-June) all nominations will be collated and sent to the members of the IP Hall of Fame Academy. They will select who should be inducted. The decision will be made public in September. This year, there will be a maximum of five inductees.

This is a not-for-profit initiative that IAM organises as a way for the global IP community to honour those who have made a significant contribution to the development of today's IP system".

Anyone who knows about the Famous Five will know that one of them is a dog. Do we get to nominate this year's dog?

Never mind dogs, what about the Canadian Fox?
