Welcome to the New GIPC
By Trinh Nguyen
If you’re not a first time visitor, you may have a noticed a bit has changed here on the virtual manifestation of the Global Intellectual Property Center. Though we may have undergone a minor facelift, the same message lies at our heart: intellectual property is vital to creating jobs, saving lives and furthering innovation and access to new products and technologies.
We encourage everyone to poke around the site and take advantage of our interactive tools. You can see how states stack up against each other with our IP Creates Jobs map, which details the importance of IP to local jobs, exports, wages, and GDP. Or if you’re interested in how intellectual property advances human progress and the global economy, hop over and join IP Delivers. And don’t forget Dangerous Fakes-where we detail how IP keeps families safe from deceptively dangerous products pushed by counterfeiters and digital pirates.
Anywhere from ‘IP 101’ to the nuts and bolts of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, we are proud to play a leading role in educating and advocating for sound and meaningful intellectual property policies as a means of sustaining innovation, competitiveness, and jobs.
