I hope, as well, that in my new task I can contribute to co-operation in the Finnish IPR industry,” says Karri.
AIPPI, the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (Association Internationale pour la Protection de la Propriété Intellectuelle), is the world’s leading international organization dedicated to the development and improvement of laws for the protection of intellectual property. AIPPI is a politically neutral, non-profit organization, based in Switzerland. The organization has over 9000 members in more than 125 countries.
Committee work aiming to international harmonization is one of AIPPI’s core functions: international as well as national laws and procedures are discussed. In addition to acting as a member of the board of AIPPI Finland Karri is also a member of AIPPI’s international Standing Committee discussing co-operation with IP offices in communications practices and procedures.
The global AIPPI congress organized annually gathers hundreds of IP professionals to deal with questions related to international harmonization and making resolutions on them. National groups, such as AIPPI Finland, lay the ground for the decisions and recommendations of the organization. They report on current issues, of which the summaries are discussed and accepted in AIPPI meetings.
