It’s so good, ITSO AFI

With the World Property Organization’s (WIPO) agenda to foster the development of appropriate, effective, and sustainable technology and innovation support services, WIPO Director, Dr. Francis Gurry, graced the launch of the Philippine network of Innovation and Technology Support Offices (ITSO) last March 22, 2012 at The Peninsula Manila.  The High-Level Forum on Access to Global Technology event which ran from March 22-23 was spear-headed by the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines for the launch of 39 ITSO Institutions, with Ayala Foundation TBI being one of them. These ITSOs or patent libraries are geared as IPOPHL’s extended institutions for the protection of IP and the development of a balanced and accessible intellectual property that will boost the Philippine economy through the safeguarding of our own innovations.

The Director General of IPOPHL, Mr. Ricardo R. Blancaflor also announced a new incentive pegged as Juan’s Thousand Inventions that will waive the patent filing and license maintenance fees for the first 1,000 innovations as a support to our Filipino investors. Mr. Blancaflor and the rest of the IP enthusiasts believes that this program will indeed encourage patent activity as well as further address the digital divide and knowledge gap within the country.

So now that Ayala Foundation TBI has been formally launched as one of the ITSOs, why not allow us to help Filipino innovators to a wide range of services that would help them benefit effectively from increased accessibility offered by internet searches through direct assistance and increase local technological base by building up local know-how.
