Intellectual Property

Trends and Challenges Facing U.S. Business:

  • Intellectual property is one of the central public policy pillars for the rapidly changing knowledge-based 21st century economy
  • Intellectual property rights provide an increasingly critical legal and policy toolkit for spurring innovation, stimulating the investments needed to develop and market new innovations, creating jobs and disseminating technology and knowledge in socially beneficial ways

USCIB’s Response:

  • Promote strong global rules to protect U.S. intellectual property
  • Advocate for IP language in trade agreements that establishes a robust and effective intellectual property framework to promote innovation
  • Protect from disclosure commercially sensitive and propriety information and documents required by governments under law or regulation

Magnifying Your Voice with USCIB:

  • USCIB is the only U.S. business association formally affiliated with the world’s three largest business organizations where we work with business leaders across the globe to extend our reach to influence policymakers in key international markets to American business
  • Build consensus with like-minded industry peers and participate in off-the-record briefings with policymakers both home and abroad.
