The Global Innovation Policy Center (formerly the Global Intellectual Property Center, and commonly known as GIPC) 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.
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.
