The 10th Annual IP3 Awards are coming up on October 9th, 2013! Who do you think deserves IP3 Awards this year?
is an exciting time for the public interest community and tech policy!
the last year, we have celebrated winning court decisions such as the Aereo
case and Kirtsaeng v. John Wiley & Sons, and we have continued to stand up
net neutrality rules when we forced AT&T to step back from its blocking of
Facetime. From bringing about a
balanced discussion around copyright reform following the dark days of
SOPA/PIPA, to carrying the torch for the social contract of the Communications
Act in discussions over the PSTN transition, to introducing DC to innovative
new technologies like 3D printing, we are the thought leaders and activists who
are leading the way forward.
Knowledge’s IP3 awards are a special occasion to honor those who have made
significant contributions in the three areas of “IP”—intellectual
property, information policy and Internet protocol.
This year will be the
tenth year PK has made the awards, and now it’s time for you to submit
nominations. They can be for a career’s worth of work, or for a more recent
accomplishment. It’s up to you.
