Companies Launch Coalition To Defend IPR In Climate Change Talks

U.S. companies this week formally launched a new coalition to defend intellectual property rights on innovative environmental technology in upcoming climate change negotiations, and its efforts are focusing on generating support among members of Congress as well as the State Department.

The Innovation, Development & Employment Alliance (IDEA), as launched on May 20, includes General Electric, Microsoft, Corning, DuPont, Praxair, Daimler, Siemens, 3M, Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems and Sunrise Solar.

“It’s primarily a business coalition, but one that will work very closely with unions, with environmental groups, with anyone that wants to protect IP and create jobs,” said David Hirschmann, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Global Intellectual Property Center.
