A Note About Our Funding And Support

CPIP has received financial and other support from a broad array of individuals, law firms, corporations, trade associations, and non-profit organizations. We are grateful to our supporters for helping us to fulfill our mission to improve scholarship and public policy regarding intellectual property rights.

Only support that serves this mission is accepted by CPIP. Freedom of inquiry, independence, intellectual honesty, and scholarly rigor are essential to accomplishing our mission. One of our core values is that academic scholarship and public policy debates about intellectual property should be based on real-world facts. Economic, historical, and theoretical analyses should conform with well-established research norms.

Therefore, CPIP does not accept gifts that interfere with its scholars’ ability to conduct intellectually rigorous, methodologically sound, and independent research and analysis. It is essential that we maintain our ability to conduct and support research in accordance with proper academic and scholarly standards, free of inappropriate influence. To that end, all donations are gifts for which there are no promises of empirical or theoretical results.
