What's the Green Intellectual Property (GIP) System?
The GIP System was first proposed in 2003 by Itaru Nitta, the founder
of the GIP Project. Simply, the GIP System would divert a part of the
patent-related monetary flow toward a trust fund, called the GIP Trust
Fund. This Fund would provide subsidies and royalty assumptions for
introducing and developing patent-protected green technologies. The
green technologies encompass eco-friendly apparatuses,
nursing-care for the elderly, welfare services for disabled people,
organic agriculture, essential medicines, and all technologies
advancing social welfare.
