World Intellectual Property Day 2018

On April 26, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) commits the “World Intellectual Property Day”. This day is dedicated to learn about the role that intellectual property rights (patents, trademarks, industrial designs, copyright) play in encouraging innovation and creativity. According to WIPO, this year’s World Intellectual Property Day campaign celebrates the brilliance, ingenuity, curiosity and courage of the women who are driving change in our world and shaping our common future. WIPO goes beyond the waffle of the day though. First of all, WIPO presents captivating stories of women who make a difference by innovation. Further, WIPO provides an overview of IPR related events that will be held this year in various locations around the globe.
