Intellectual property rights

DIGITALEUROPE's Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) group covers all IP-related matters, with the exception of copyright. It promotes the importance for adequate IP protection in Europe and serves to educate the decision makers, the media and other stakeholders on the use of IPRs by the digital technology industry in Europe. 

The IPR group is especially active on IPR issues such as the Unitary Patent Protection and the Unified Patent Court, as well as the protection of undisclosed know-how and business information (trade secrets).
