The Global Intellectual Property Academy (GIPA) offers capacity building programs in the United States and around the world on intellectual property protection, enforcement, and capitalization. Capacity-building programs are offered to patent, trademark and copyright officials, judges, prosecutors, police, customs officials, foreign policy makers, and rights owners.

The Academy programs are key to accomplishing this vital endeavor. The programs present the U.S. methods for protecting the IP rights of business owners, complying with international IP-related treaty stipulations that protect the IP rights of business owners, and administering patent and trademark examining operations. In delivering capacity building programs the Academy works closely with other United States government agencies, trading partners and international organizations.
