About this event

Please join Public Knowledge as we celebrate our 19th Annual IP3 Awards!

The IP3 Awards is 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 nineteenth year Public Knowledge has held the awards, and we're excited to celebrate with you.

Our 2022 Internet Protocol Award will be presented to Representative Jim Clyburn. Representative Clyburn is the Majority Whip and the third-ranking Democrat in the United States House of Representatives. As a national leader, he has championed rural and economic development and many of his initiatives have become law.  Congressman Clyburn championed a holistic approach to affordable, reliable broadband for all by introducing the Accessible, Affordable Internet for All Act.

Our 2022 Information Policy Award will be presented to Emma Llanso. Emma is the Director of the Center for Democracy & Technology’s Free Expression Project, where she works to promote laws and policies that support Internet users’ free expression rights. Emma’s work spans many subjects, including hate speech, terrorist propaganda, and disinformation, and includes legislative advocacy, amicus activity in U.S. courts, and engagement in multistakeholder initiatives and global advocacy campaigns. Much of Emma’s advocacy focuses on the legal and technical systems that govern online communication, with a focus on the capabilities and limitations of machine learning techniques in analyzing user-generated content.

Our 2022 Intellectual Property Award will be presented to Kyle K. Courtney. Kyle is a lawyer and librarian, serving as the Copyright Advisor at Harvard University, working out of Harvard Library's Office for Scholarly Communication. His work frames the law as the foundation for advancing the mission of all libraries, archives, and cultural institutions to acquire, preserve, maintain, and share the world's culture. He works closely with the Harvard community to establish a culture of shared understanding of copyright and related legal issues. His “Copyright First Responders'' initiative is in its ninth year and has reached libraries, archives, and cultural institutions across the country.

This will be our first IP3 Awards in person since 2019 so we are looking forward to seeing everyone in their best-looking attire. Please save the date and come celebrate on Thursday, September 29th!
