Prof F Mostert inducted to the IP Hall of Fame

Prof Frederick Mostert, extraordinary Professor of IP Law and member of the Anton Mostert Chair of Intellectual Property Law at Stellenbosch University, is one of the five 2015 inductees to the IP Hall of Fame. Prof Mostert is past president of the International Trademark Association (INTA) and former chief intellectual property counsel of luxury group Richemont. He is also a research fellow at St Peter’s College, University of Oxford, and guest professor at Peking University.

Prof Mostert joins a list of the most eminent IP scholars and practitioners in the world, including Nicola Tesla, Prof Paul Goldstein and fellow IP blogger Jeremy Philips.

Prof Mostert was also the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Luxury Law Summit 2014 for his contribution to the luxury industry. Prof Mostert’s career as legal professional includes many significant contributions to legal development across the world, among others the recent landmark case involving a brand from the Richemont stable which resulted in a successful defence of IP rights in the digital environment. (This matter was recently discussed by Prof Mostert at the annual IP public lecture at Stellenbosch University.)
