Global Intellectual Property Center

Multilateral Organizations

The Global Intellectual Property Center actively promotes the rights of creators and inventors in multilateral organizations around the world, including at the bodies of the United Nations (UN) and the World Trade Organization (WTO).

The policies developed in organizations such as the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO), World Health Organization (WHO), and Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), can have a significant impact on the development of and access to new technologies and content.  Unfortunately, on the global stage misconceptions about the role of IP in economic growth can hinder the adoption of improved rights for creative entrepreneurs.  The GIPC is engaged with stakeholders globally to challenge these notions.

Through the IP Delivers campaign and our work with partner organizations, we provide policy makers with evidence-based research and individual testimonials on the important role IP plays in promoting safety for consumers, economic growth, and access to the latest technologies.  Our research shows that intellectual property rights are critical for promoting breakthrough solutions to global challenges.  That is why GIPC is working to ensure that businesses and policy makers are collaborating to create rules which preserve and protect IP rights.
