Innovation & IP

Intellectual property (IP) systems have a vital role to play in spurring innovation and in giving companies large and small a range of tools to help drive success.

Through awareness-raising and advocacy initiatives, ICC explains the positive role of the IP system. We provide guidance on how the system can be made more efficient and cost effective, and help policymakers adapt the system to new challenges.

ICC also plays an active role in supporting efforts to combat counterfeiting and piracy by raising awareness of their adverse economic and social impacts among governments and consumers around the world.

ICC is the voice of global business on IP issues arising from the crossroads between intellectual property and other areas such as the digital environment and the Internet, the environment, health, development and competition policy.
