Here it comes: the IPO of the Future!

A lot of thought has been put into what the intellectual property office (IPO) of the future might look like. In fact, in 2019, the IPO of the Future Think Tank was set up to reflect on exactly that.

This independent body, comprised of 14 current and former heads of IPOs around the world, explored key themes for IPOs to consider as they prepare for the future.

Facilitated by the International Trademark Association (INTA), the Think Tank Report (PDF) was released in 2020 with a comprehensive look at what IPOs can expect in the not-too-distant future.

With the fast pace of change, in November 2022, the IPO of the Future Checklist was produced to accompany this report and to make it easier for IPOs to identify key considerations as they prioritize upcoming activities to meet future challenges.
