Tomorrow, April 26th, is World Intellectual Property Day!

World Intellectual Property Day celebrates innovative thinking and creativity

April 26th has been designated 'World Intellectual Property Day by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) to recognize and promote human creativity and ingenuity in all its forms.

The theme of this year's celebration is "Intellectual Property - It Starts with an Idea". On this day we highlight our ongoing commitment to Innovation.

Launched in 2001, the day highlights the importance of intellectual property as a tool for economic, social and cultural development. Focused on ensuring that the rights of creators and owners of intellectual property worldwide are protected and recognized, WIPO also helps facilitate international trade by providing a level playing field for the marketing of intellectual property products.

You can find more information on intellectual property and the WIPO at their (somewhat uninspired) website, at and also from my links section, in my Resources for Writers area
