McCarthy Inducted in IP Hall of Fame

March 14, 2012

Senior Professor J. Thomas McCarthy was one of six global intellectual property leaders to be inducted into the Intellectual Property Hall of Fame for 2012.

Established by the London-based Intellectual Asset Management magazine, the award honors individuals who have helped to establish intellectual property as a key business asset of the 21st century. Inductees include men and women from the fields of business, politics, law, finance, and academia.

“I am immensely pleased to be included in the IP Hall of Fame alongside such eminent and outstanding people in our field,” McCarthy said.

McCarthy, the founding director of the USF School of Law McCarthy Institute for Intellectual Property and Technology Law, is an internationally renowned author on intellectual property matters and the author of McCarthy on Trademarks and Unfair Competition, which has been cited in more than 3,000 judicial opinions.

Other inductees include Béatrix de Russé, head of IP and licensing at Technicolor; Todd Dickinson, executive director of the American Intellectual Property Law Association; Alan Drewsen, executive director of the International Trademark Association; David Kappos, under secretary of commerce for intellectual property and director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office; and Marybeth Peters, former United States register of copyrights.

The 2012 inductees will be honored in Portugal in June. They join 47 other awardees who have been inducted since the hall of fame was launched in 2006.
