Judy Basis passed away Saturday, August 22, 2015. She battled cancer for more than 30 years.

Basis was a force in the licensing industry. She helped shape the way business takes place when she and her partner Harvey Stern launched The Licensing Book back in 1983. Industry veterans will remember her as someone they could count on for sound advice (both business and personal), and as an essential partner in growing their businesses when the licensing business was still in its infancy.
