The Global Innovation Policy Center (formerly the Global Intellectual Property Center, and commonly known as GIPC[1]) is the principal institution of the United States Chamber of Commerce handling all issues relating to innovation and creativity through advocating for strong intellectual property standards.[2]

It aims to:

  • strengthen the protection and enforcement of IP rights in the United States and abroad,
  • promote and defend the system of IP rights and norms in the United States, key countries, and multilateral forums,
  • increase support for IP rights as a driver of innovation and creativity.


The Global Innovation Policy Center was launched in October 2007 at the U.S. Chamber’s 4th Annual Anti-Counterfeiting and Piracy Summit. The GIPC was formed as an expansion of the existing efforts of the U.S. Chamber’s Global Anti-Counterfeiting and Piracy Initiative.
