#GivingTuesday: A Message from CPIP on Giving Tuesday 2020

As we enter the holiday season and look ahead to 2021, we hope that you will keep CPIP in mind as you plan your end-of-year giving. Your support is critical to ensuring that CPIP can continue to bring reason and balance to the academic debate on intellectual property (IP) by engaging academics, creators, and innovators in a scholarly dialogue. Through our programs, events, network of scholars, and in-house staff, we have made great strides, but there is more work to be done. CPIP is an academic center and receives neither government funding nor funding from George Mason University, and it is only through the private support of our partners and sponsors that we can fulfill our mission.

Looking ahead to CPIP’s ninth year of operation, we are proud to be a leading academic voice in the discussion of IP rights and the technological, commercial, and creative innovation they facilitate.

The generosity of our partners and supporters is essential to CPIP’s success, and we thank you in advance for your support.
