IIIPCIC Preparing to Engage a New Stakeholder Group: IP Prosecutors!


iipcic app

The International Intellectual Property Crime Investigators College, IIPCIC, hosted an elite group of global IP Crime prosecutors from July 24-26 at UL’s Carugate, Italy office. The mission of the meeting was to develop a new curriculum for global prosecutors interested in pursuing IP crime cases in their regions. IIPCIC is a global training platform that trains police, customs agents and private sector investigators on the nature of IP crime and how to successfully conduct traditional and online investigations.

This new curriculum would invite a new stakeholder group, IP prosecutors, to join the 16000+ registered IP investigators from both the public and private sectors. Some of the topics to be covered include evidence collection, courtroom presentation, parallel proceedings and damages and sentencing. In addition to IP prosecutors, the new curriculum would include content meaningful for police officers and investigators as well as customs officers. The curriculum is planned for release in Q4 of 2019.

The subject matter experts who participated are pictured.  From left to right,  Sunday Okoebor, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Nigeria; J.
