Intellectual property (IP), the driving-force behind innovation, is our most valuable trade asset. The value of innovation can be found in every corner of the country. Every state and local community plays a role in helping America grow and remain competitive. Universities, acedmics, state and local governments officials, consumer groups, and the business community must find ways to advance policies that promote IP.
Please join the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Global Intellectual Property Center in protecting and promoting the ideas that drive job creation, economic growth and America’s competitiveness.

It is critical to protect innovation and creativity by promoting strong IP rights and norms around the world through the following:
- Strengthening protection and enforcement of IP rights in the United States and abroad.
- Promoting and defending the current system of IP rights and norms in the United States, key countries, and multilateral fora.
- Raising awareness and increasing support among key audiences for the value of strong IP rights as a driver of innovation and creativity.
