This year the IP Hall of Fame welcomes leading US copyright scholar, lawyer and author Paul Goldstein; past president of the INTA and former chief IP counsel of Richemont Frederick Mostert; influential IP blogger and academic Jeremy Phillips; leading Australian IP lawyer Des Ryan; and, prolific inventor Nikola Tesla.
The IP Hal of Fame is an initiative of IAM (Intellectual Property Management), a magazine that I used to have a regular column in covering Israel IP developments, and still occasionally write for. I am delighted that Professor Phillips is being inducted into the hall of fame. I think it is very appropriate.
Tesla is presumably induced into the hall of fame. He died in 1943.
Professor Jeremy Phillips and his flagship IP KAT is an inspiration to fellow bloggers. He is also involved in a dozen other blogs and is very generous with his time and experience. Jeremy has spoken at a number of events I’ve organized in the past, and is always thought provoking and entertaining.
I think this is an appropriate tribute to one of the most prolific IP authors and trademark experts.
