The method of IP Value Capture is being applied to products throughout Africa such as
Ethipopian coffee, Ugandan vanilla, and Mozambique cashews, and there have already
been noticable results. An upcoming meeting for t
he African IP Trust will include the
particpation of:

     --Paul Boateng, the former British Ambassador to S. Africa
     --
Congresswoman Diane Watson
     --
Carrie La Crosse, Head of IP at the State Department
     --
The Prime Minister of Ethiopia

Clearly, IP Value Capture is an up-and-coming business approach on many important
peoples' minds.
