정남기 회장

The 「Trade-Related Intellectual Property Rights Protection Association」 (TIPA) is a private organization (non-profit association) established to protect intellectual property created by creative companies that have developed human civilization for a long time and costly from so-called counterfeiting. .

Among the various organizations for the protection of intellectual property, our association was launched in January 2007 with the permission of the Korea Customs Service to protect suppliers and domestic and foreign consumers participating in trade activities.

ur association consists of domestic and foreign intellectual property holders and companies that import or distribute legal goods as members, so that fake foreign brand products imported from abroad and fake overseas brand products from Korea to foreign countries that undermine Korea's credibility and credibility of creative companies We are working hard to prevent K-brand products from crossing borders and being distributed in the market.

Until a decade ago, Korea was a 'country subject to surveillance of intellectual property rights violations'. In other words, it was a country that made counterfeit products in the international community, a country that should be closely watched. Our association, which was launched under these circumstances, has contributed to developing Korea into a leading country in protecting intellectual property rights in the world by engaging private member companies and related organizations such as the Korea Customs Service to crack down on counterfeit goods at customs clearance sites and in the market.

Going forward, we will further strengthen cooperation with member companies and related organizations to further enhance the effectiveness of these counterfeit products. We look forward to your interest and participation.
