AIPPI is an international organization of business firms, executives, lawyers, educators, patent and trademark agents, intellectual property owners, and other persons interested in the worldwide protection of patents, designs, trademarks, trade names, know how, goodwill, copyright, and other intellectual property rights and the elimination of unfair trade practices. 

The international organization is domiciled in Switzerland. AIPPI currently has over 8,000 members. It operates mainly through National Groups, of which the United States group, AIPPI-US, is one. In addition, AIPPI has two regional (multi-national) groups, as well as individual members in the countries where no National Groups have yet been formed. The members of AIPPI represent more than 100 countries. The website for the international organization is www.aippi.org.

The initials "AIPPI" are taken from the French name of the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (Association Internationale pour la Protection de la Propriété Intellectuelle).

  • AIPPI-US Annual Meeting (Thursday, October 27, 5-6pmET)

    Dear AIPPI-US Members and Friends,

    The 2022 World Congress in San Francisco has now drawn to a close.  By all accounts, it was a grand success and will go down in AIPPI history as as one of the most memorable Congresses.   AIPPI-US had a very strong turn out at the Congress, fielding the largest delegation in attendance.  With the palpable buzz created by the US-hosted Congress, I am also happy to report that AIPPI-US membership has increased by over 75% in the last two years.  The vision of AIPPI-US serving as a vanguard group of internationally focused IP practitioners with the confines of AIPLA continues to come to fruition. 

    Looking ahead to the end of the month, the AIPPI-US Annual Meeting will be held in–person on Thursday, October 27, 2022 from 5-6pmET at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, National Harbor Maryland, during the AIPLA Annual Meeting. Among other things, the agenda includes:

    • State of AIPPI-US
    • Recap of 2022 World Congress, including the 5 Resolutions
    • Elections for next year's AIPPI-US leadership
    • Preview of 2023 World Congress (Istanbul)

    For those that cannot attend in person, please that there will be an “unofficial” remote feed via Zoom.  Here is the Zoom link.  Meeting ID, 161 699 2514, Passcode 428108.)

    After the meeting and as customary, we will meet up and "clink glasses" to celebrate another successful year of AIPPI-US.  Location is TBD.

    Very best,

    Christopher V. Carani
    AIPPI-US, Chair
