  • World Intellectual Property (IP) Day is April 26, 2017. Every April 26, World IP Day is celebrated to learn about the role that intellectual property rights (patents, trademarks, industrial designs, copyright) play in encouraging innovation and creativity. This year, the World Intellectual Property Organization will explore how innovation is making our lives healthier, safer, and more comfortable, turning problems into progress. They will look at how the intellectual property system supports innovation by attracting investment, rewarding creators, encouraging them to develop their ideas, and ensuring that their new knowledge is freely available so that tomorrow’s innovators can build on today’s new technology.
