A unique coalition of trade and enforcement organisations. Providing a single voice for those who share an interest in promoting innovation and growth through intellectual property in the UK
The All-Party Parliamentary Intellectual Property (IP) Group was launched in 2003 to raise awareness of the value of IP to the UK and the harm caused by IP crime.
Chaired by John Whittingdale MP, the Group provides briefings and information for Parliamentarians wishing to protect their constituents, businesses in their areas and the UK’s creativity. Members have the opportunity to hear of the devastating effects of IP crime and what they, as legislators, can do about it. They can also see firsthand the scale of the problem and the huge task facing trading standards officers, the police, customs & excise and industry, by undertaking visits to problem markets or accompanying enforcement officers on raids. Further information on the work of the group can be found here on their website.
