WASHINGTON (October 26) — This week, the Council for Innovation Promotion, a bipartisan coalition dedicated to promoting strong and effective intellectual property rights, launched its first major advertising campaign to highlight the important role Members of Congress play in ensuring the United States maintains its leadership in the innovation economy.
C4IP’s digital advertisements will celebrate the commitment these Members have made to American innovation and strong intellectual property (IP) rights. With an initial, mid-six-figure spend, a customized version of the ad also asks constituents to contact their representatives and encourage them to continue supporting American innovation and advocating for strong IP rights. The following Members of Congress are featured in this ad campaign:
Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT)
Rep. Young Kim (R-CA 39th District)
Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ 5th District)
Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA 4th District)
Rep. Michelle Fischbach (R-MN 7th District)
“Intellectual property rights are enshrined in the Constitution for a reason,” said Frank Cullen, executive director of Council for Innovation Promotion. “Strong IP protections help Americans prosper and power a strong economy. It’s important for the public to recognize and encourage congressional representatives who work to protect American innovation.”
“We’re excited to ensure that constituents recognize how hard their member is working to support American innovation,” said Cullen. “Strong IP protections power a strong economy.”
