Free IP Services for Developing Countries
In 2002, Public Interest Intellectual Property Advisors (PIIPA), a US-based international non-profit organization, set up a network of volunteers to provide specialist advice on IP matters.
Over 3,500 attorneys, academics, policymakers and practitioners from 50 countries make up PIIPA’s IP Corps, which provides free IP legal services, training, symposia and support for over 130 clients in 35 developing countries.
