The UK Intellectual Property Office
The UK IPO works with international partners, other government departments, businesses and other stakeholders to develop an international framework that meets the challenges of today’s increasing global markets. We do this by building relationships with stakeholders and policymakers around the world, to help shape the global debate on intellectual property matters.
We have also developed a range of free products and services to help support UK businesses operating in key international markets, including China, India, Brazil and SE Asia, where we have a network of IPO staff located to help support businesses and policy makers.
