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).
