World Intellectual Property Day - 26 April 2013

Categories: 

Every year on April 26, the World Intellectual Property Day is celebrated in order to promote intellectual property (IP).

The World Intellectual Property Office's (WIPO's) member states designated April 26 – the day on which the WIPO Convention came into force in 1970 – as World IP Day with the aim of increasing general understanding of IP, including trademarks, designs, patents, utility models etc.

Each year, a special topic and focus is picked. This year's World Intellectual Property Day 2013 focuses on Creativity - the Next Generation.
