Center for Intellectual Property

IP rights create opportunity. But to most people, what they achieve is unclear.

The Center for Intellectual Property Understanding (CIPU) is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to increasing awareness of the impact of intellectual property on peoples’ lives.

It tracks attitudes towards patents, trademarks and copyrights, and seeks to dispel misinformation and facilitate good IP behavior. CIPU provides a framework for understanding how IP rights promote competition and create jobs.
