Sunday, April 26 is World Intellectual Property Day, a day to celebrate and learn about the role that intellectual property rights play to encourage and facilitate innovation and creativity. Originally created by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in 2000, World IP Day is celebrated on April 26 to mark the anniversary of the WIPO Convention becoming law in 1970.
The theme for this year’s World IP Day is Innovate for a Green Future, highlighting innovation that supports eco-friendly technologies and the IP rights that support that innovation. Intellectual property is used in many different aspects of the effort to create a cleaner, more environmentally friendly future. Patents, trademarks, and copyrights support the development and growth of businesses and individuals that are committed to environmental sustainability.
