A Message From CPIP on Giving Tuesday

As we enter the holiday season and look ahead to 2020, we hope that you will keep CPIP in mind as you plan your end-of-year giving. Your support is critical to ensuring that CPIP continues its activities and works to engage academics, creators, and innovators in a scholarly dialogue on the importance of intellectual property. CPIP’s programs, events, network of scholars, and in-house staff have made great strides in recent years to bring balance and reason to IP debates, but there is more work to be done. CPIP receives no funding from George Mason University, and it is only through the support of our partners that we are able to fulfill our mission.

Contributions help CPIP:

  • host conferences, roundtables, fellowship meetings, symposia and colloquia, the WIPO Summer School on Intellectual Property, and many other programs that promote an ongoing dialogue on the importance of IP rights
  • produce and support the production of a variety of scholarly articles and policy materials that explore the value of IP
  • employ an in-house staff of directors and communications specialists who work tirelessly to plan and execute CPIP programs and events
  • maintain and grow an international network of scholars, lawyers, and other professionals dedicated to the scholarly analysis of IP

As we look ahead to CPIP’s eighth year of operation, we are proud to be a leading academic voice in the discussion of intellectual property rights and the technological, commercial, and creative innovation they facilitate. We have an exciting lineup of programs and events planned for 2020 as well as research and policy work agendas that will focus on key IP issues. The generosity of our partners is essential to CPIP’s success, and we thank you in advance for your support.
