The Center for Intellectual Property Understanding (CIPU), in conjunction with the UC Berkeley-Haas School of Business and the Tusher Initiative for the Management of Intellectual Capital, is holding the third annual Intellectual Property Awareness Summit (IPAS 2020) on March 5th.
IPAS 2020 is an international gathering of IP owners, organizations, educators, investors and thought-leaders all with a common goal – to make IP rights and intangible assets more intelligible.
U.S. leadership in science and technology, entertainment and brands is no longer assured.
A major reason is the widening gap between IP awareness and understanding. IPAS 2020 will examine domestic and global challenges to IP understanding, including patent uncertainty, rampant counterfeits, content abuse, digital rights and trade secret theft.
?Following successful CIPU events in New York (IPAS 2018) and Chicago (IPAS 2017), IPAS 2020 in greater San Francisco will include lP speakers and participant from the U.S., Europe, and Asia.
