Intellectual Property Policy Group

The Intellectual Property Policy Group (IPPG) works to influence national and international legislation and practice to support an IPR regime that incentivises and protects UK innovation. The committee focuses on aspects of IP that are particularly relevant to the tech industry including patents, copyright licensing, and European IPR policy. Members of the committee are qualified patent agents and IP practitioners from large and small companies.
