"In a world that is becoming more immaterial every day and where more and more business models revolve around intangible goods, IP is the linchpin for economic activity and success. [ is] a brilliant initiative that does just that: explain IP simply... with examples, materials and resources."

Professor Dr. Alexander J. Wurzer

Director IP Management Education at CEIPI

“A succinct and stylish introduction to IP rights that recognises the hurdles confronting IP newcomers.  I use it in an introductory session, to boost students' IP confidence and get them talking.”

", CIPU’s IP information portal, makes it simple for students to understand how intellectual property works and why it is important Content is presented visually from a legal and business perspective. This innovative approach encourages my business students – many of whom are interested in invention and entrepreneurship – to acquire the IP knowledge they need to succeed."

"I think IPBasics is useful for students to view and learn from because it is organized and reputable. It provides many resources [like] articles, podcasts, and videos about the topic. Since every individual should have a basic understanding of intellectual property, this website would be perfect for students to gain their beginner knowledge or build on their prior knowledge"
