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".

  1. 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?

  2. Never mind dogs, what about the Canadian Fox?


All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
