World Intellectual Property Day! Reach for Gold: IP and Sports#WorldIPDay
Every April 26, WIPO celebrates World Intellectual Property Day to learn about the role that intellectual property (IP) rights play in encouraging innovation and creativity. Each year they choose a theme and this years theme is Reach for Gold: IP and Sports! Via WIPO
Faster, stronger, higher! The drive to test our abilities, the thrill of competition, and the awe we experience in watching ordinary people achieving extraordinary feats, have fueled our fascination with sports for thousands of years.
World Intellectual Property Day is a great opportunity to get people interested in issues relating to intellectual property (IP). While WIPO promotes a general theme each year, it is up to you to decide how best to use the event to make a splash, or to meet your organization’s own public awareness raising goals.
