Nominate someone for the MIP 50
Another deadline this month is for the 50 Most Influential People in IP (MIP 50), a popular annual list which we relaunched last year.
If you would like to nominate an individual for the list, please send your suggestions to Ed Conlon at firstname.lastname@example.org before or on October 28 2019.
The MIP 50 list features individuals who are shaping IP law, debate, policy and business throughout the world. They are individuals considered to be influential now and/or are likely to be in the future. The list typically features in-house counsel, public body officials and academics, as well as celebrities that have had a particularly big recent impact on IP.
Managing IP's editorial and research teams are guided by a few principles in selecting individuals.
Firstly, private practice IP practitioners are typically not eligible for this list (we already recognise them in our IP STARS publication). We reserve the right to make exceptions to this, however, if we deem someone has made a particularly big impact outside of their law firm job.
A second principle is that this is a global list, so we try to include a good geographical spread.
Is there anyone out there, anywhere in the world, who is driving debates or shaping perceptions around IP that you think we should know about?
Please tell us the name of the person you think should be included, with a brief explanation of why you think they are influential.

Thanks for your input.
