Preserving Intellectual Property

Prioritizing Innovation for Everyone, Everywhere

In our work with companies from around the country, we can see first-hand the value that Intellectual Property (IP) protections hold for innovators in their fields, and for the health, wellness, and economic success of everyday people in the United States.

These videos explore the significance of IP for companies working to advance healthcare innovation and positively impact people’s lives, and shed light on why IP protections affect everyone – from families to students and business owners, to people like you.

We spoke with three innovators about IP protections, their businesses, and the causes that have inspired them to create life-saving technology, diagnostic tools, and provide accessible healthcare to all.
