IP and InnovationBSA promotes policies that safeguard intellectual property (IP) rights for the software industry. BSA believes:

  • Patents, copyrights, trade secrets, and other IP rights should be comprehensive and enforceable.
  • Countries around the world should not use IP rights to advantage local industries or stave off international competition.
  • Companies should not use licensing practices, to create unfair competitive advantages.
