The American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA) is a national bar association whose membership includes IP attorneys in private practice, government and academia.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s advocacy efforts on behalf of U.S. companies include obtaining increased intellectual property rights protection and enforcement actions with trading partners. The Global Intellectual Property Center (GIPC), an affiliate of the U.S. Chamber, was established in 2007 and has since worked to raise public and government awareness about the costs of intellectual property infringement.

The International Anti-Counterfeiting Coalition (IACC) is the largest international organization devoted solely to combating product counterfeiting and piracy. Comprised of a cross section of business and industry - from autos, apparel, luxury goods, and pharmaceuticals, to food, book publishing, software and entertainment - the IACC's members' combined annual revenues exceed $650 billion. The IACC develops and conducts training for domestic and foreign law enforcement officials, submits comments on intellectual property enforcement laws and regulations in the United States and abroad and participates in regional and international programs aimed at improving intellectual property enforcement standards.
