Stated purpose
“WISE, Inc., is a Delaware corporation used by Religious Technology Center (“RTC”) as its interim nominee for registering Scientology religious marks in countries that do not recognize ownership rights of religious corporations or enforce their contracts. (It was described in the Form 1023 RTC filed on March 15, 1990.) In 1985, the Inspector General Network (“IGN”) was formed to be the registered owner of the religious marks in such countries. The process of transferring registration of the marks from WISE, Inc., to IGN is ongoing; hence, WISE, Inc., is still the registered owner of the marks in a few countries, but this is its sole function. Once IGN becomes the registered owner of all the marks, WISE, Inc., will be dissolved.” (1991)
