Origins
After three years of intensive negotiation, Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) and AT&T (now Agere System Inc., formerly part of Lucent Technology, and formerly part of AT&T) reached a broad Patent Cross License Agreement in March 1993. Encouraged by this agreement, many companies became AT&T’s licensees. This Agreement enabled them to utilize AT&T’s patents and enjoyed a lower royalty rate.
To bring Taiwan, Republic of China closer to the goal of developing into an Asia-Pacific Regional Operations Center, AT&T pledged a portion of the collected royalties to establish a non-profit foundation. The foundation’s objectives are to promote intellectual property management, IP awareness and more important to build an IP related multi-purposes databases to serve the industries in Taiwan and the world through World Wide Web. Through these efforts, the Republic of China hopes to become the hub of intellectual property rights-related information center, thus to improve both economic and trading relationships with other countries through fair and reciprocal trade.
As the co founders of this foundation, ITRI and III also donated fund to the foundation, and Lee& Li Attorneys-at-Law provided legal services as part of their pledge. The Asia Pacific Intellectual Property Association (APIPA) thus was established on June 3,1994, through the joint endeavors of international technological and law professional.
Goals
To promote the effective management of intellectual property rights and R&D results.
To assist enterprises in establishing management of intellectual property rights and commercialize their R&D results in Taiwan.
To set up the APIPA intellectual property database and provide intellectual property rights-related information services.
To develop Taiwan R.O.C. into an Asia-Pacific regional intellectual property rights information center.
