Andrew, Rob, and I are all in Munich for the IP Business Congress this week. Look out for Andrew on a panel with his fellow IAM 20 members Richard Buttrick and Joe Beyers together with Johan Feenstra of Liquavista, and Carmen Vela of Ingenasa, and discussing SMEs and IP on Monday.
Our friend Ben Lehman of Think IP Strategy will be moderating a panel on
“Working together” on one of my favourite topics, open innovation on Tuesday. Ben kindly hosted me on a recent IPThinkTank podcast on Apple’s IP strategies, and I hope to catch up with him on the latest developments in all things Apple.
If you’re in Munich and want to catch up about IP and IP strategy (or BBQ, if you happen to cook), please grab me for a chat.
It’s that time of year again, and nominations are now open for the IP Hall of Fame. The IP Hall of Fame comes from the folks at Intellectual Asset Management magazine.
Don’t just think of someone alive today – hall of fame members include Sir Edward Coke and Thomas Edison, though only the live members get a vote (unlike the apocryphal story of Jeremy Bentham at the University of London):
Via the nomination process, anyone in the global IP community can 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.
The deadline is 2 December, with the 2010 inductees announced in February 2010 with a gala dinner at next year’s IP Business Conference in June, in Munich.
