Involvement of the IPI

Nationally and internationally

Counterfeiting and piracy affects all sectors and doesn't stop at national borders. National and international cooperation is required to successfully tackle it. The Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property (IPI) is committed to fighting counterfeiting and piracy both domestically and within international organisations.



STOP PIRACY is the Swiss anti-counterfeiting and piracy platform. As a founding member of this association, the IPI plays an important role in this field. It was founded in 2005 and is a public-private partnership made up of members from the public administration and the private sector. It works to raise public awareness of the risks and background of counterfeiting and piracy, and is committed to facilitating cooperation between industry and public authorities.



In the fight against counterfeiting and piracy, Switzerland is actively involved in numerous international organisations that deal with enforcing intellectual property rights. These include:
