Henkel & Cohen Partner Ira Cohen, Esquire, a Member of ASIPI ( the Inter-American Intellectual Property Association) attended the ASIPI Seminar in Asuncion, Paraguay March 14-18, 2015.

ASIPI is the first intellectual property regional organism in the American continent and one of the pioneer organizations worldwide in the regional sphere and since its creation, ASIPI has had presence and international recognition as a representative intellectual property organism in the Americas.

Before 1964 there did not exist an Inter-American institutional framework which would meet the needs, interests and concerns of the specialists. The impact of ASIPI’s creation was such that in the first congress held in Buenos Aires, one year later, 122 delegates of 16 countries were gathered and today ASIPI has more than one thousand five hundred affiliates belonging to all of the American countries and other regions like Europe, Asia and Africa.

Since its creation until today, ASIPI, through the actions of its different Executive Committees, Work Committees and meetings held throughout the region, has been involved in the positive and accelerated evolution that intellectual property has had worldwide, answering effectively and responsibly to the emerging challenges and perspectives and playing a prominent role as platform for the economic, social and legal development of our countries.

ASIPI, as an Inter-American regional organism, is an observing member of the World Intellectual Property Organization – WIPO and actively participates in other international forums like the World Trade Organization – WTO and the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers- ICANN.
