The three main components of the property rights ecosystem (Legal and Political Environment, Physical Property Rights, and Intellectual Property Rights) interact to attract investment and nurture healthy institutions. Prosperity and property rights are inherently linked. Over the course of history, the implementation of property rights formalization has increased human prosperity and social security. These rights are embraced by all sectors of the industry.

Property rights guarantee freedom. The right and freedom to property allows for personal freedom and provides an incentive allowing people to live and work for a purpose. Strongly protected property rights are now widely recognized of great importance among legislators and economists. Private property includes intellectual property rights such as patents, copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets. It is the foundation for ideas to grow and develop, giving an incentive to entrepreneurs to keep innovating.

The International Property Rights Index (IPRI) is the world’s only index dedicated to the measurement of intellectual and physical property rights. It is a tool for policymakers, business communities, and civic activists to score the underlining institutions of a strong property rights regime. Covering 129 countries the 2019 IPRI reports on the property rights systems affecting 98 percent of world Gross Domestic Product and 94 percent of the world population.
