Intellectual Property Rights Committee

To respond to members’ needs, AmCham has established a Committee for Intellectual Property Rights (IPR). The main goal of this Committee is to lobby for IPR protection and provide leadership that will bring together interested partners. Share information with decision makers and law enforcement is also a priority; the police, judiciary, prosecutors, customs, legislators and journalists are among the initial target group, while the curriculum of university law schools should have more emphasis on IPR.
