Advocacy for IP Rights

AIPLA actively advocates on behalf of our members and the entire IP community, regarding important issues. We are the respected expert on IP issues before the US Supreme Court, US Congress, US Patent and Trademark Office, World Intellectual Property Organization, and in many other public and private forums.  AIPLA also works diligently to build relationships with international IP organizations.


AIPLA offers a variety of publications from a scholarly journal to surveys, books and seminar papers. We take pride in producing quality resources that keep our members up to date on current and pressing issues in the intellectual property community. Your AIPLA membership includes:
