SES and IP-Shield Announce the IP Alliance
SDOs lose revenue via unintentional and sometimes illegal distribution of their standards. While we may never be able to police the infringement from unauthorized sales, we CAN support the SDOs by calling attention to common misuses in the workplace. SES and IP-Shield bring you the IP Alliance, which believes education is the key to stopping copyright infringement. By joining the alliance we provide you with resources including a short video to post on your website to help your users mitigate risk. For more information visit: IP Alliance.
