Here are the thought leaders we're recognizing with an award this year for their contributions in the three areas of "IP"—intellectual property, information policy and Internet protocol:
- Rebecca MacKinnon, a Bernard L. Schwartz Senior Fellow at New America Foundation and the Co-Founder of Global Voices Online, for educating the public about the importance of Internet Freedom.
- Mike Masnick, the CEO and Founder of Techdirt, for his role in fighting SOPA and PIPA and for his continuing work on copyright enforcement issues.
- Andrew Schwartzman, the former President & CEO of Media Access Project, for a lifetime of work on promoting the public interest in a diverse media market place.
We are also honoring Rep. Darrel Issa with a President's Award for the invaluable role he played in defeating SOPA and PIPA this January.
