Intellectual Property

Our economy is driven by the need to innovate, create, and develop new ways to serve consumers, and industries that rely on intellectual property (IP) play an essential role.

When inventors, researchers, engineers, artists, and entrepreneurs know that their work will be protected and rewarded through strong IP rights—including patents, trademarks, and copyrights—they have the certainty and the incentive to keep the economy-boosting innovations coming. Moreover, IP protections guard consumers against dangerous fakes and counterfeit goods.
