Over the past four years, Public Knowledge has recognized leaders in the fields of Intellectual Property, Information Policy, and Internet Protocol, with the IP3 Award. These are individuals who over the past year (or over the course of their careers) have advanced the public interest regarding one of the three kinds of “IP.” While these increasingly overlapping policy arenas pose important challenges for us, they also create important opportunities for creative individuals in each of the three underlying fields to advance the public interest.
We'd like your help in recognizing leaders in the fields of Intellectual Property, Information Policy, and Internet Protocol. As with the past three awards, we're asking you for nominations. Please email your nominations to IP3nominees@publicknowledge.org, or you can leave a comment to this post, below.
With your nomination, please send us your reason, however brief, for suggesting the individual or organization and a means of contacting the nominee. We will accept anonymous nominations but ideally we'd like to contact the nominating parties in case we need further information. We need your nominations by Sept. 14, 2007. IP3 Award winners will be invited to attend the October 11, 2007 awards ceremony in Washington, DC.
