Intellectual Property

In today’s fiercely competitive, knowledge-based economy, intellectual property (IP) is a central component of adding value to business. Companies from the smallest start-up to the biggest global conglomerates, virtually all industries and even entire national economies, are increasingly depending on IP for leadership and growth.

The Caribbean Examinations Council (the Council) is aware that the value of its IP and its potential for providing opportunities for future profit may have been underestimated in the past. However, there is now greater appreciation that IP can become a valuable asset when it is properly protected and leveraged, and where there is demand for IP-protected products and/or services.
