Since 2014, the International IP Crime Investigators College (IIPCIC) has been celebrating excellence across the IP enforcement and protection communities around the world. Our annual awards are designed to acknowledge and reward law enforcement personnel and government agencies making a significant impact with innovative and effective approaches to fighting IP crime in this global and challenging environment.
