The US Chamber and Pugatch Consilium launch the third edition of the GIPC IP Index

Posted by:

This week Pugatch Consilium, in partnership with the US Chamber’s Global Intellectual Property Center, released the third edition of the annual GIPC International IP Index. The 2015 edition of the Index, entitled UP: Unlimited Potential, maps the intellectual property environment in 30 economies. Overall, although challenges remain across the board, positive steps are being taken in many of the economies included in the Index. In fact, 20 of the economies mapped in 2014 improved their scores in the 2015 edition. The report also underscores the benefits experience by countries as they strengthen their IP environments in a special section that correlates the GIPC Index scores with 15 variables reflecting key economic activities.
