Who We Help: Protectors
The Foundation of the IP Ecosystem!
Intellectual property is a complex legal construct that requires the specialized knowledge of lawyers, paralegals, and other intellectual property professionals to help identify the creations that are worthy of protection. Protectors are the glue that holds the IP Ecosystem together and helps make sense of it all, working with the creators and enablers to bring ideas to market successfully.
As a protector in the IP ecosystem, it is important to be able to effectively communicate, advise, and counsel creators and enablers on how IP protection can be leveraged throughout the innovation process and go-to-market journey. GIPA is a valuable resource for protectors to stay connected and informed on the rapidly evolving changes to the legal landscape.
