Congratulations to all those nominated and this year's winners! We look forward to reading and reviewing more IP books in 2022!

Please note: Some nominations do not appear in the list above because they were not about IP Law, or were not published in 2021. Votes for books that were nominated in the wrong category (e.g., a trade mark book nominated in the copyright category) were counted towards the book in the relevant category. In addition, voters were asked to only vote once; those who tried to cheat the system and vote more than once had only their first vote counted.

No comments:

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.
