State Department Pays WIPO Dues

The Copyright Alliance reported that last week, they were notified that after completing its review of World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) activities, the Department of State paid 85% of its WIPO dues, enabling the United States to remain an active participant within the organization. In August, the Copyright Alliance joined a multi-industry letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on the need to maintain U.S. leadership in WIPO, explaining the “very real threat that the United States and its creators and innovators will lose their voice at WIPO by January 1, 2018” due to non-payment of dues, and that such a loss could “harm American innovation, IP, and exports.” Apparently, this letter helped convince the USG to pay its WIPO dues.
