Today, World IP Day is celebrated!

Every year, the 26th of April is celebrated as World Intellectual Property Day. The aim of this is to inform the public about the role that intellectual property rights play in encouraging innovation and creativity. This year’s theme is digital creativity.

It has been celebrated annually from the year 2000 when the World Intellectual Property Organization’s (WIPO) member states designated April 26 as World IP Day. After all, April 26 is the day on which the WIPO convention came into force in 1970.
